Taster   Joel Harrison
Nose: Wonderful sweetness of Eton mess, white chocolate, parma violets. Eggnog.
Palate: More of the white chocolate, this moves from simply a bar of the stuff to those small, post-dinner truffles served with coffee, popular in the 80s. Velvety smooth, just enough spice to give the sweetness an honest plaything; well balanced.
Finish: Delicate, sweet, vanilla custard.
Comment: Sweetness and light, this is well matured and well rounded and highly entertaining. Summery? Yes. But well worth sipping in the other three seasons as well.
9.1
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Lightly phenolic with herbal accented peat and hints of elderflower, toffee and citrus.
Palate: Soft and caramel flattened. The caramel is probably natural but it flattens nevertheless. A sliver of lime appears but there’s not much happening here apart from the oak!
Finish: Soft and oaky (surprise!) with some light peat smoke and a touch of citrus as the spirit breaks free of the oak shackles.
Comment: Far too much oak. The spirit never stood a chance.
