Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Clean and spicy. Cinnamon and cumin sizzling in butter backed with blackcurrant and strawberry fruitiness. There's melted chocolate before it firms into cigar tobacco.
Palate: A very juicy start before those spices pick up and carry the flavours along. Meanwhile a succulent, almost oily, syrupy sweetness (tinned fruits) is bedding things down in the middle of the tongue. Complex and unctuous.
Finish: Green plums and a firm dry farewell.
Comment: You wonder what's coming next... the Black Spot? The Clear Spot?
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Fruity and spicy. Crystallised ginger, apple toffee. Demerara syrup.
Palate: Very sweet at first. Velvety feel. Gets spicier at mid palate. Cooked fruit. A hint of milk chocolate.
Finish: Medium long, sweet and spicy at the same time.
Comment: Spices balance the sweet heart of that delicious whisky. Oak is perfectly integrated. Excellent.
