Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Light but spirity.Dry hay.Cut grass.Ahint of angelica.A grainy touch.
Palate: Smooth and sweet. Given the strength,one could expect much more aggressiveness. Pear Williams
Finish: Fizzy and warm,the alcohol shows up.
Comment: On the palate,much more like a fruit spirit (Pear Williams) than like a whisky.A bit grainy on the nose.
