Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Mouthwatering. Florist shop: lily, freesia, then comes apple: blossom/sweet eating apple. Fragrant with a light malty note.
Palate: Delicate but vibrant with good feel and a fresh natural ripeness. Orchard fruit, boiled sweets, gentle oak. Good balance.
Finish: Lightly dry.
Comment: Proof that a whisky can be delicate yet complex.
8.0
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Tangy. Mustard poultice, shallot dressing.
Palate: Sweeter than expected. Floral. Orange blossom. With water, honeyed cereal bowl.
Finish: Warms up on a gingery and peppery tanginess. A pleasant toasted hazelnut come back.
Comment: The nose is unusual, closer to a sour Chinese broth than a whisky! But the palate restores an expected floral Lowland freshness.
