Tasting notes
Taster   Joe Bates
Nose: Quite an earthy nose for this dram. Think damp earth after the rain with some woody notes thrown in for good measure too.
Palate: Quite a chewy mouth-feel, black pepper and liquorice mingle with some dark blackcurrant cassis, with some burnt toast flavours.
Finish: Long, sweet, but also a little smoky on the finish.
Comment: What to make of this oddball? Some rather contrasting, complex flavours that strangely hang together rather well. One to ponder and enjoy.
Taster   Gavin D. Smith
Nose: Delicately perfumed, with blooming heather, ginger and warm leather.
Palate: Spicy malt, milk chocolate and ripe pears.
Finish: Medium length, soft spices and cocoa.
Comment: A nicely weighted, quaffable and enjoyable whisky.
