Tasting Note (from previous release)
Batch B1/16
Tasted: June 2014
A beautifully intense nose of spicy, pot still aromas. Completely unique odour of buzzy spice, grainy coffee'd tannins and edgy honey coated apricot. Hints of marzipan and soft, sweet-ish vanilla appear but given time the aromas become earthier with developing notes of dry soil, loam and mulch.

The palate is full and again showing plenty of pot still bite. Wonderfully soft apricot, apple, honey and ginger appear, again with an earthy nuance. Lovely intensity with quite a woody middle, but the finish is long and chewy with light vanilla, marzipan and spice. Wow!

With water the nose softens but the spices are still alive and kicking! There is more of the mocha and coffee aromas and the oak has become sweetly fragrant. And that honey is just to die for now! The palate is like the nose softer and with the oak a little bit more prominent. However the pot still graininess shines through. Extremely mouth-filling with the spices lingering along with a little bitter tannin at the death. Stunning stuff!
