Tasting notes
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Mature, with Madeira-like dried fruit rancio of oxidised grape. The grain spirit dried fruit notes come through along with sherrywood spice and coffee, hot Shredded Wheat and a light, freshening citrus.
Palate: Elegant, citric and spiced with dried grape and barley. The sherry is subtle and comes through along with juicy dried fruit, treacle and grain spirit.
Finish: Long and beautifully spiced with plenty of dried fruit.
Comment: This proves that when you get the oak balance right with a grain and a sherry cask, it’s a great combination.
Taster   Joel Harrison
Nose: Crunchy Nut Cornflakes are the first note out of the glass, with a hint of lily of the valley and lavender. Heather and more honey come through the back of the nose.
Palate: Very drinkable, this is oily and big with lots and lots of sweet honey notes of heather and vanilla all in abundance here. Doesn’t shy away from its region.
Finish: Wonderfully sweet with peaches and cream. Long and lingering.
Comment: A bold example of honeyed, sweet grain whisky. Very good indeed.
