Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Earthy,damp moss. Like walking in a wood on a wet day. Developing on a slightly rancid cheesy note. Cereals and dry hay with a drop of water.
Palate: Smooth and sweet. Fudge and ginger. Water gives it a velvety feelbut strangely enough,it brings in a slight bitterness.
Finish: Quite lingering,soothing on fudge and liquorice.
Comment: The nose is not inviting but the palate delivers interesting flavours.
7.5
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Malty/mashy notes. Draff steaming in the cold air. Barley sugar with a hint of pear,stewed apple and light almond. Fragrant,with some burnt wood.
Palate: Acidic,mouth watering start then a creamy mid-palate. Rounded and apple like mid-palate. The acidity returns towards the finish. Very clean.
Finish: Tingling.
Comment: Well controlled. Wood just coming into play and despite the sulphur it's a pleasing light,sweet spirit.
