Neil Ridley

75
Nose
Brazil nut shells, boot polish, dark waxy honey and acetone, given time a little dried mint begins to emerge.
Palate
Muscovado sugar, oak notes, some dry ginger and woody cinnamon. With water, some liquorice and chopped Brazil nuts.
Finish
Very dry indeed, with an almost earthy feel on the end.
Comment
Powerful, but fairly one-dimensional.

Rob Allanson

78
Nose
Oxford marmalade, orange blossom honey, fresh pencils, printer's ink and new magazines.
Palate
Earthy, sherried and a little meat stock. A hint of mint jelly and some sweet melted brown sugar notes.
Finish
Short and drying.
Comment
A big whisky with dominant wood notes.
