Dram Association Panel Tasting Notes

The nose first treated us to a selection of desserts. Apple and cherry crumble drizzled with caramel sauce and creme Anglaise. Banoffee pie. Yes, for those uninitiated, that’s banana and toffee – and it’s awesome. Even tootsie rolls joined the buffet. There was a slightly bitter note that added a depth to the aromas. Not a burnt bitterness, more like a grape skin.

On the palate, we got an array of flavours that told of a combination of cask types. There was a definite sherry note that came across with dried cherries, alongside thick creamy vanilla and macadamia nuts. We found sliced pear, raisin bread and custard creams – an old-school English biscuit. There is soft peat that swells towards the finish and then lingers with beautiful serenity. Well crafted and well balanced. Light but powerful, like someone turned the gravity down and everything just weighs less.
