Palate: Sweet,banana split,some melon and then late arrival of sweet spice.
Finish: Quite long and all sugar and spice.
Comment: Pleasant enough but not one of Cooley'schampionship efforts.
Nose: Malty.Farmyard. Hay and straw with an animal touch. Barley sugar.
Palate: Satin-like. A lovely feel of sweet cereals. Muesli with dried cranberries and bananas crisps. All sort liquorice.
Finish: Clean,rather crisp but with a pleasant length.
Comment: An enjoyable dram. Well balanced with a good structure and a straightforward malty profile. Far better when neat. Water makes it soft and heavier.
