Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Pure and light. Lifted, lightly floral. Lily, broom, fennel, fruit. Hint of nut (hazel/brazil). Pine. Sweetly refined with an extra level of complexity.
Palate: Medium-bodied and lively. Silky, soft fruits. Graceful and smooth with balanced oak.
Finish: Broad. Cedar. Winey.
Comment: Just beginning to pick up complexity. Try this distillery at 12 or 15! World class.
8.5
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Floral. Peppery. Prickly. Cider apple. Becomes buttery with toffee notes. Distant echo of creosote.
Palate: Sweet and sour. Pear-drop, pineapple. Varnish. Tangy in the middle.
Finish: Dry and assertive. Concentrates on spices and oak.
Comment: Nose is more attractive than the palate. Lacks elegance and cohesion.
