Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Complex and fragrant. Crisp/plain oak, vanilla pod, coconut then comes rose petal, berry fruits, stewed rhubarb, celery and with water roasted nuts,currant leaf and even a little touch of the farmyard.
Palate: Unctuous. Rosehip syrup, little touch of chilli. Concentration and lightly waxy. The perfume nose is paralleled here: ripe fruits, strawberry, patisserie.
Finish: Gentle.
Comment: A clever balancing act here - and it works.

Taster   Dominic Roskrow
Nose: Spirity. A bit sharp at first. Then soy sauce and then big fruit. Lots going onbut a badly tuned radio of a nose - every time you pick up somethinggood it disappears again.
Palate: Golly, another surprise. Rich and sweet, with apricot, berries, dark chocolate and plenty of sweet pepper.
Finish: Rich, solid fruity and spicy.
Comment: Really? Wouldn't have called that. Those holiday taste buds again. A bit ofa radical departure for Glenmorangie, but an exciting one.
