Chris Goodrum

Nose
A lovely, mature nose of tropical fruit – apricot, pineapple and melon with hints of lemon and sawdusty oak. Beautifully poised and elegant.
Palate
Soft and buttery with a considerable amount of oak. The tropical fruit and barley is well buried but just about discernible as is the citrus.
Finish
With that amount of oak it comes as no surprise that the finish is a little drying and bitter.
Comment
A pleasant, mature whisky, which has almost succumbed to the oak.

Sara Smith

Nose
Sweet, dark wood, sherry, fruit, honey, and caramelised brown sugar with a hint of salt. Slightly minty notes, herbal peppermint tea, and a touch of pineapple.
Palate
Savoury, with a pleasant, fiery texture. Notes of puffed rice, vanilla, cream crackers, and a leafiness. Fades to a dry, bonfire smokiness.
Finish
Creamy vanilla, butter, rice cakes, interrupted by more perfumed floral notes and chives. This all settles onto comforting notes of pipe tobacco.
Comment
A flavourful whisky that is fresh, invigorating, and indulgent without being too heavy.
