Tasting Notes
Craig DanielsNose: 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 NukalaBlind 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 WoodGlass: 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.
