Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Phenolic and marine. Boat tar. Wet rope. Then sweeter notes. Vanilla waffles. On time a floral note. Orangeblossom? Some citrus (lemon sorbet).
Palate: Smooth. Sweet and malty with a distinctive iodinic note; Salty feel. Fizzy. Dry spices.
Finish: Long,dry with an oaky sherried edge.
Comment: A fresh and dry whisky. Gradual delivery on the nose.The palate is more in one piece. But a beautiful one!

Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Rounded,deep and mossy. Aromatic, toasty oak tangerine zest almost floral smokiness:incense,scented candles. Tantalising mix of the fragrant,thesweet and the dry. Best neat.
Palate: Spicy with plenty of ginger and nutmeg. Good length,dry smoke, then heather. Mellow,yet firm enoughto add a layer of complexity.
Finish: Crisp,long.
Comment: A drier expression of HP from the norm and all the more fascinating for that.Recommended.
