Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Floral and fruity. Delicate touch of orange blossom. Overipe pear. Distinctive creamy nuttiness. Fresh walnut. Wood notes emerge slowly and softly.
Palate: More vibrant than nose announced. Fizzy. Develops on buttery notes. Plum pie.
Finish: Tangy, spicy, lingering. Fresh ginger. Peppery.
Comment: Not much connection between nose and palate. But the surprise is pleasant. A beautiful wake-up malt on rainy days.
8.5
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Nutty. Burnt toast, llight rasin notes, cooked raspberry, almost jammy. Water releases top notes, tinned fruit salad.
Palate: Ripe and thick, dried fruits, raisin, light spices. Soft feel. Oak in balance.
Finish: Charred, almost smoky. Mushroom.
Comment: A well balanced 'finish'. Marsala suits it well.
