Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Toffee and fudge. Malty. Barley sugar. Fresh mash. Apple skin. White chocolate.
Palate: Round. Alcohol is perfectly integrated. Sweet maltiness developing on fruity flavours. Ripe bananas. Tickling spices. Ginger, a hint of tabasco.
Finish: Spicy, nutty.
Comment: A classic malty beast. Well balanced. A winter warmer to enjoy with nuts and crispy nibbles.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Slighty oily, cut grass powdered almond. A discreet vetiver like scent develops but that turpentine note never quite disappears.
Palate: Oily in texure, clinging to the tongue mandarin. Light creaminess. Delicate.
Finish: Rice crispies.
Comment: An aperitif best taken by 10am. Has identifiable Linkwood character but it's all rather muted.
