Tasting notes
Taster   Neil Ridley
Nose: Spiced pears in white wine, aromatic wood notes (cedar and sandalwood)with a creamy Bourbonesque note, back-dropped by golden syrup. What'snot to like here?
Palate: The spiced orchard fruits continue onto the palate, with some additionaltangerine sweetness, fresh cherries and vanilla.
Finish: Oaky, yet, light and rich, with the vanilla leaving the biggest impression.
Comment: A continuation from the previous, in terms of style, with definite notes of citrus and pleasant oak.
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Like walking past a working sawmill or carpenter's workshop, gentle rum and raisin, toasted marshmallows, coconut milk, macaroons, kiwi fruit and freshly opened pencil boxes.
Palate: Sweet and fruity with a warm Danish pastry and custard note. A brief spicehit but then it seems to disappear mid palate. A slight bitter oak bite.
Finish: Crisp, clean with toffee notes lingering.
Comment: A decent well put together whisky.
