Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Grassy, floral. Artichoke consommé, carnation. A deep and fresh aromaticprofile. Develops on citrussy notes. Lemon sherbet. Quite appetizing.
Palate: Satin-like texture. Sweet and smooth. Lemon drop with a touch of liquorice.Tarragon. Becomes fizzy at midpalate Cough losanges.
Finish: Fizzy, drying on ground ginger.
Comment: A lively whisky. It has kept its vibrant freshness after a long maturation. Witha charming grassiness.
8.0
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Distant and cool. Snuffed candle and muted fruitiness - someone left thebirthday cake out in the rain? Fresh fruit on ice, jasmine tea, a hint of smoke, daikon radish, pear juice and ozone.
Palate: Light and fine-boned with decent feel which saves it but still light for a 28yo.
Finish: Soft and quite short.
Comment: A very pleasing dram with decent balance, but just a touch too discreet.
