Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: A slight farmyard note,like a pasture after the rain.Sweet almost menthol quality. Table polish.
Palate: Sweetness continues with light,nutty notes. The melted brown sugar tone shines through.
Finish: Very satisfying.
Comment: Very rounded performance that almost creeps up on you.
8.2
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Cereal and stewed rhubarb,apple. There's more oak here,but it's balanced and toasty. Light pot pourri notes and a lick of varnish. Very fine boned with slight floral lift.
Palate: Sweet and with a certain discreet power. There's a dark undertow to this which is overlaid with tangerine and a slightly confected flavour with water. Quite tight,but subtle.
Finish: Dry with good length. Menthol.
Comment: Quietly understated. An Edinburgh lawyer (but with a personality).
