Tasting Notes

Dave Broom

Taster

Nose: A lifted spicy nose without water, dipping into lemon sherbet, lime and mandarin with some chocolate, smoky wood and cold tea as well.

Palate: Seriously chewy stuff with a layer of almost minty toffee running through it.

Finish: Long and rich with dry coconut and spice.

Comment: An absolute cracker. Taste a whisky as good as this and you'll be instantly converted to blends.

Score: 9

Michael Jackson

Taster

Nose: Rich, sweet, creamy. Clean maltiness.

Palate: Firm, smooth, almost slippery. Creamy, fruity (Cherries? Peaches?).

Finish: Big, firm, Fruity, peppery.

Comment: Do you have a sweet tooth? Verges on the liqueur-ish.

Score: 8
