Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Malty. Fruit and fibre cereals. A touch of burnt applewood. Strawberry yoghurt. An intriguing floral note (wild rose?).
Palate: Sweet with a sour touch. Smooth, refreshing. With a wave of liquorice dying out on a spicy fringe. A hint of yeasty wash behind.
Finish: Medium, tangy, dusty. A nutty aftertaste.
Comment: Seems to have stored all the ingredients for a healthy breakfast. A morning dram? Quite inviting.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Very sweet, almost liqueur like with a green fruit note underneath: unripe plum mixed with kumquat and a sweet syrup note. Very creamy.
Palate: Big impact. Tingling alcohol. Some herbal notes. Gentle and clean with a hint of smoke.
Finish: Long, full and clean.
Comment: As a blend of Scottish and Irish whiskies this is certainly atypical, but it works well.
