Tasting notes
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Reeks of age. Elegant, malty, herbal and sweet with violet tinged incense and Armagnac dried prune, grape, fig and walnuts. Creamy vanilla balances with milk chocolate and green tea.
Palate: Complex mature malt, sherry and subtly sweet dates, plum and prune. Old Armagnac demeanour but the citrus adds a balancing freshness with hints of creamy vanilla.
Finish: Long, majestic and spiced (both sweet and dry) with vanilla and cigar/tea leaves.
Comment: Balanced and mature. Just how a sherry cask should be.
Taster   Joel Harrison
Nose: In tasting flights of whisky, you wait for a nose like this: sweet strawberry yet with a hint of balsamic vinegar and cracked black pepper to balance it out.
Palate: Quite a wonderful palate of really well-aged malt whisky, hints of freshly chopped mint play with big oak tones and that strawberry flavour once again.
Finish: Jammy Dodger biscuits served with a Blood Sand made with vintage Scotch.
Comment: Pretty much how mainland Scotch whisky should taste (holds breath for price).
