Tasting notes
Taster   Annabel Meikle
Nose: This reminded me of making models - wood glue and balsa wood. Also licking stamps and brown envelopes. New fresh oak and light citrus notes.
Palate: Very silky smooth like lemon curd and syrup. Grape skins and the juice from tinned fruit salad. Fresh wood shavings and hazelnuts.
Finish: Spreads over your tongue like gomme syrup but without being overly sweet.
Comment: The initial nose threw me off balance, but it grew on me. I’d enjoy this with a cube of ice.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Yeasty. Strong note of putty. White bread dough.
Palate: Sweet then these odd flavours of burnt flour. Cardboardy. Pear drop.
Finish: Dry and slightly bitter.
Comment: Very unusual and I must say, not pleasant. Water does not save it. Woodford Reserve Malt ? They’d better stick to Bourbon…
