Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: At first there's sweetness but that develops into a very gentle farmyard note. goat's cheese and honey with cracked black pepper spice.
Palate: Follows the nose at first, earthy and warm. Then the fruits arrive. Apricot jam and Danish pastries, those green chocolate lime humbugs. Finally the vanilla comes through with a hint of smoke.
Finish: Long and warming with those spices tingling.
Comment: A solid, dependable whisky with all in balance.
Taster   Lyndsey Gray
Nose: Strathdon Blue on toast with oak smoked ham, prawn cocktail crisps and sour cream. Give it a bit of time for notes of lemon, barbequed watermelon and vanilla custard to develop.
Palate: The tastebuds are having a shock of sour! Last night’s tea leaves, cider vinegar, dehydrated orange peel and grapefruit zest with flashes of lime filled charcoal smoke.
Finish: Long finish with a sour and bitter chalkiness.
Comment: A full on fruity barbeque.
