74
Nose
Fruity. White peach. Pears poached in a sweet syrup. Hint of yeast.
Palate
Smooth and round. A bit watery and bland. Sweet vanilla. Cereals with a touch of honey.
Finish
Short, sweet. Fades quickly.
Comment
Not unpleasant but light in flavours although syrupy in texture.

Rob Allanson

79
Nose
Smoky and slightly medicinal, hints of citrus and a sweetness. Some distant barbecue notes as well.
Palate
Rich and full. A slight grain note, black pepper comes through with a peated edge. Bags of malt tones too.
Finish
Shortish with the smoky notes coming back at the end.
Comment
No back to Black after this.
