Tasting notes
Taster   Joe Bates
Nose: Quite earthy and herbaceous with some pine needles in there too.
Palate: Caramel, honey, and dried at first, then more woody and spicy flavours come to the party.
Finish: Medium length finish, tannic flavours from the barrel dry the mouth.
Comment: A drop of water helps soften up this quite high strength whisky, making it more mellow and approachable.
Taster   Gavin D. Smith
Nose: Quite shy, mildly floral, rose blossom. Soft toffee in time.
Palate: Quite substantial, with overt orchard fruits and milk chocolate.
Finish: More chocolate and cream, and gentle spices.
Comment: Perfectly sound, but lacks much development.
