Taster

Palate: Chopped chilli, rich soy sauce, pulled pork and great oak spiciness.\n

Finish: Slightly oily, buttery and rich.\n

Comment: Caught at the right time, this maintains a balance of distillery character, \ncask spices and oily richness. Very good whisky making indeed.

Score: 9

Chris Goodrum

Taster

Nose: An overload of dense, saturated, coffeed, first fill Oloroso. Raw but soft with walnut, prune, raisin, green nuts and astringent sour fruit and herbal notes. A \ntouch of spice adds a little warmth.

Palate: Luscious and juicy treacle coated sherried fruit with hints of French coffee and gentle spices. Straightforward but deep. \n

Finish: Medium length with a very coffeed and tartly herbal finish. \n

Comment: A sherry monster and a half. Completely blemish free but a sherry monster nevertheless.

Score: 7.9
