Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Slick and fruity (toffee apple), becoming buttery with water. Malt, nuts, sesame oil and some sherried notes. Plenty going on.
Palate: Rounded and soft with a burst of spiciness mid-palate. There's some smoke as well. Complex and soft with excellent balance.
Finish: Dry, a little short?
Comment: Strikes an excellent balance between those spicy high tones and a sweet but nutty palate. A little slick.
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Cream. Toffee.
Palate: Spicy. Complex. Maple syrup. Fruity, cinnamon. Brown sugar, baclava pastry.
Finish: Balancing dryness. Very slight woodiness. Firm, gripping.
Comment: Well-balanced. Full of flavour.
