Tasting notes
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Pronounced oak softened by fruity rye and gentle vanilla. A little toffee and honey.
Palate: Big, big lift off with a powering oaky-rye surge and an immediate arrival of spice. Toasty towards the middle with the corn arriving late on.
Finish: Long, cocoa and oak finale; burnt toast with a spread of honey.
Comment: More oak and age than normal. Being small batch, it does vary but is always delicious.
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Cigar-boxes. Hint of charcoal.
Palate: Very firm. Full of flavours, tightly combined. Whole almonds, marzipan.
Finish: Very long. Flowery. Violets.
Comment: Perhaps encouraged by the dark-orange colour, the descriptors sound sweet but overall effect is one of pithy dryness, with great finesse.
