Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: High-toned and estery but with a deep caramel toffee from the oak. Super-ripe fruits and a smoky edge.
Palate: Praline, runny toffee, sultana. Somewhat rum like: allspice, ginger, brazil nut, cool mint, rice crackers. Smoke hangs above like a veil.
Finish: Clean and gentle. Medium.
Comment: Perfume and smoke? It's a Japanese Ardmore.
8.3
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Citrussy and buttery. Orange curd. Earthy and musty. Moss, fern. Hint of rose.
Palate: Sweet at first, then gets close to medlars. Spices wipe out this unpleasant note.
Finish: Dry and spicy. Rather tangy.
Comment: Lacks balance. Alcohol is quite fierce. Water tames it down but needs to be strictly dosed as it enhances bitterness. Some character but quite sharp.
