Tasting notes
Taster   Becky Paskin
Nose: Candied peaches and cream, light maltiness and toasted coconut with a smattering of wood shavings.
Palate: Mouth-wateringly fruity, the juicy, ripe peaches burst to life. Some fresh eucalyptus and black pepper join the party, somewhat taking control, with a touch of oak rounding off the end.
Finish: A little bit spicy and dry.
Comment: I wish the peachiness had lingered a little longer.
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Apple and cherry wood-smoked ham. Coconut snowballs, as in that thin chocolate shell with fondant and desiccated coconut. Carpenter’s workshop, planed wood, warm metal and teak oil.
Palate: Grilled pineapple and mint mix with sappy wood, then vanilla and turmeric. Oranges in packing crates, cedar chests with mothballs and warm pressed linen.
Finish: The wood spices win, black tea tannins dry out to marmalade and crumpets.
Comment: A great example of an American single malt. A relatively easy drinker.
