Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Fresh, lively, clean. A rich toffee creaminess teased by grassy and floral notes. Like breathing in a meadow field on a crisp September morning.
Palate: Sweet, smooth and caressing. Nutty flavours enhanced by a luscious mintiness (like minty fudges).
Finish: Long and dry. Clean also.
Comment: An excellent refreshing dram. Well balanced, rich and light at the same time. Very enjoyable with chilled water.
8.8
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Fresh, with light notes of chaff, acetone and a whiff of hot plastic. Improves no end with water: dolly mixtures, lime blossom, muscat and lots of sweet American oak.
Palate: Soft and gentle with a lightly fizzy quality that opens up into crisp apple and light toffee.
Finish: Medium. Smooth.
Comment: A clean session drink.
