Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: A lifted spicy nose without water, dipping into lemon sherbet, lime and mandarin with some chocolate, smoky wood and cold tea as well.
Palate: Seriously chewy stuff with a layer of almost minty toffee running through it.
Finish: Long and rich with dry coconut and spice.
Comment: An absolute cracker. Taste a whisky as good as this and you'll be instantly converted to blends.
9.0
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Rich, sweet, creamy. Clean maltiness.
Palate: Firm, smooth, almost slippery. Creamy, fruity (Cherries? Peaches?).
Finish: Big, firm, Fruity, peppery.
Comment: Do you have a sweet tooth? Verges on the liqueur-ish.
