|Craig Daniels||Nose: Pastry, vanilla, oak, maybe a hint of paint or emulsion. Slightly sour fruit, melon with toffee. Palate; woody and fruity, slightly astringent. Finish; woody and metallic, wood bitters that linger; some furry metal and rainwater. |
|Krishna Nukala||Blind tasted on 18/08/2011 and I am not surprised to find that I gave same score as Keith. Tasting Notes same as Roberts except that I got some milky caramel and a mild bitter finish |
|Keith Wood||Glass: Classic Malt
- Colour: Light amber
- Nose: Aged oak, blackberries, faintest hint of banana and lavendar. Perhaps with a suggestion of Brasso after 2-3 minutes.
- Palate: Creamy and smooth with plenty of vanilla alongside oak, with melon and apple flavoured ice cream.
- Finish: Long and lingering.
- Overall Impression: I guess it does exactly what it says on the label; oak and vanilla, plenty of them too. |
