Tasting notes
Taster   Christopher Coates
Nose: Pencil shavings, Danish oil, furniture polish, walnut liqueur, blackberry pie, spearmint leaf, rooibos tea, and peanut brittle.
Palate: Medium-full. Peanut butter on toast, cornbread, toffee sauce, milk chocolate with raisins, dried Pink Lady apple, and a subtle, red wine-like undertone. Blackberry jam, tea cake and delicate violet notes. Tonka bean syrup.
Finish: Long, on toffee and crème de violette.
Comment: Balanced, mature, and very well rounded.
Taster   Bethany Whymark
Nose: Toffee popcorn, toasted pine nuts, buttery hard caramels, savoury American biscuits, and caraway seed. Cherry pits and freshly scraped vanilla pod. Lemon peel and a hint of pollen.
Palate: Light-medium. Cherry-menthol cough sweets and walnut. The bitterness of black coffee, with rye crackers and herby cream cheese. Caramel milk chocolate bar and a hint of gingernut biscuit.
Finish: Long, becoming more familiar with buttered popcorn, coconut milk, and clove.
Comment: A fairly restrained bourbon, with fruit and spice up front.
