Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Enticing, lively and aerial. Light smoke mingled with summer flowers fragrances.
Palate: Velvety, gently spreading on the tongue. Creamy light toffee teased by a hint of smoke. A mouth-watering texture.
Finish: Balanced, smoke over dry grassiness.
Comment: A warm, clean and charming whisky. The Islay influence is there but gently flirting with a mainland fellow. An accomplished character.
8.8
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Smoky, bacon fat mingling with peach, cocoa powder. Aromatic and almost floral.
Palate: Very focused in the front of the mouth giving a really sweet start. Fragrant vetiver grassiness, then butterscotch. Good length. Oily.
Finish: Long, creamy.
Comment: As much about texture and balance as it is about smoke. Not as monstrous as I recall, but very good.
