Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: The most herbal and spicy of the WT range: wild thyme, sage, fennel, coriander, nutmeg, cumin. Also smokier than the rest with notes of molasses, chestnut honey, crème brûlée.
Palate: Complex and very soft. Raisin bread, butter, tupelo honey/maple.
Finish: Huge and everlasting. Highly complex.
Comment: As sexy as Isaac Hayes' Hot Buttered Soul. One to savour all night.
9.0
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Soft and luscious. Fruity, orangey. Chocolate. Mint.
Palate: Big, lively, flavours with ginger and more chocolate.
Finish: Especially gingery. Root ginger? More chocolate.
Comment: My descriptors make it sound like a dessert whisky, but it is also very appetising. Just a tad too sophisticated for me.
