Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange

    • Nose

      Raisins and spice with leathery hints kick things off. The leather quick fades to reveal freshly polished oak and lightly spiced baked apples. Minty notes creep in around the edges, along with fresh, green leaves. These slowly sweeten into grassy spring meadows with stacks of hay around the edges.

    • Palate

      Sweet and floral to start, with wax-polished oak as a backdrop. Slices of apple and pear follow, with candied flowers and a hint of both zingy lemon zest and bitter pith. There’s biscuits at the base – shortbread, and oatmeal and raisin cookies – all dipped in a bowl of single cream. Spice builds through the middle along with herbal leaves: mint, menthol and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

    • Finish

      Polished oak leads to Garibaldi biscuits, lemon jelly and mint choc chips. Cream remains.

    • Comment

      The dram is a bit of a journey. It’s more delicate than the notes above suggest, with a gentle, almost traditional lowland character of grass and hay. A dram that rewards dedication.

  • Caroline Roddis, The Whisky Exchange

    • Nose

      Muddy boots fresh from forest floors, and November bonfires in the distance. Clinical lemon aromas are joined by glacé cherries, iced vanilla buns, and grape jelly. A touch of high-quality olive oil is joined by honeysuckle and burnt orange toffee.

    • Palate

      Waxy, with vanilla toffee, honey and sticky crystalised ginger. Freshly-squeezed berry juice follows, then the cask makes its presence known and spicy oak notes build.

    • Finish

      Heavier spice and dense ginger cake, fading to orange blossom honey.

  • Tom Ransome-Jones, The Whisky Exchange

    • Nose

      Grapes and young Cognac, moving into slightly underripe green apples, apple wood and apple blossom. Develops further to become freshly cut shavings of dry oak.

    • Palate

      Sparkling, tongue-crackling, oaky spice. A little aromatic apple again, with a touch of orange and a distant whiff of soft caramel.

    • Finish

      More warm spice and powerful, dry orange.

  • Ning Heywood, The Whisky Exchange

    • Nose

      Very gentle aromas of white heather, blossom honey, soft mal and lemon zest to open. Slowly caramel, freshly-baked sponge cask and vanilla develop.

    • Palate

      Richer than the nose, it offers notes of shortbread, caramel, lemon curd, fresh ginger, set honey and malt start the palate off. Lighter notes of lemon zest, orange, summer flowers and cedar wood develop slowly.

    • Finish

      Woodier and spicier than the palate, the finish offers notes of oak, ginger, black pepper, caramel and liquorice.
