Nose
?Earthy. Damp warehouse. Forest ground after a heavy shower. Dried fruit, almonds and nuts. Dundee cake. Opening on sweeter notes after some time. Praline.
Palate
?Smooth at first but quickly reveals a crispy dryness. Sour fruit. Citrus. Crystallised ginger. Slightly sherbet on the tongue.
Finish
?Dry, spicy. Rather long. Demerara sugar.
Comment
?A dash of water cuts the edges but weakens the aromas. A well balanced whisky, hesitating between sweet and sour but finally choosing the latter.

Rob Allanson

Nose
?Sweet, rich cake mixture, dried fruits, candied citrus peel and honey roast nuts Dunnage warehouses, damp soil. Some sweet notes of woodland honey.
Palate
?Silky and sweet at first then a freshness knitted with citrus and Christmas cake mixture comes through. Caramalised sugar and apples slices.
Finish
?Lingering with some lovely spices and oaky notes.
Comment
?Lovely stuff. The Bull just keeps on charging with some excellent expressions.
