Tasting Notes:
Tasting Notes by Tim F

Nose: Wow, lots going on: rich honey sweetness, some strong melon notes, bananas in various forms - fresh, foam and milkshake, then some barley sugar and very light smoke emerges.

Palate:  Quite full and generous, with very rich flavours following on from the nose,  and a luxurious oily texture.  Sweet initially, but the phenols are much more evident on the palate than the nose, with thick smoke and rich wet peat alongside more subdued melon and banana fruit notes from the nose. A thread of honeyed lemon runs through the whole ensemble.

Finish:  Good length, sweet and lightly sooty, with the fruit lingering much longer than expected.

Comment:  We've normally bottled this at the traditional 80 proof, but the vatting was just far too good to add water to.  Superb stuff.
