Issue 41
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Fresh, fragrant. Light peatiness. Late hint of sweet seaweediness.
Palate: Complex. Lots of flavour development. Light oily hint of seaweed, passion fruit. Lively interplay of sweetness and saltiness.
Finish: Sweet mustard.
Comment: Savoury. Summery. A picnic malt. Or eating freshly shucked oysters with Jim McEwan.
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Chocolate coated caramel bars, coconut macaroons, hazelnuts and pecans in a hard toffee crisp. There’s a floral edge of rose. Hints of exotic spices, garam masala and Chai Latte.
Palate: The sweetness starts to roll up, Quality Street boxes and chocolate éclair in liquid form. Choux pastry, glacé cherries in brandy and just a touch of oak.
Finish: Tinned peaches and vanilla cream. Then the spices explode and dry things off.
Comment: A solid whiskey indeed, begs for a little dried meat as an accompaniment, and possibly a little red ale.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Almost rum-like: light spirit allied with tropical fruit/melon/zesty notes. Opal fruits and lilac. In time a hint of crystallised ginger. Fades relatively quickly.
Palate: Plenty of (balanced) oaky notes. Quite a thick feel with fresh fruit all the way.
Finish: Just a touch metallic.
Comment: A very pretty whisky.
