Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Rich creamy toffee. Butterscotch. Makes me think of a millionnaire shortbread. A lively grassy note in the back. Lemon balm. Fresh tangerine juice. Multilayered. With water, orange blossom honey.
Palate: Smooth and round. Toffee with a fruity sour note. Then fresh oak and spices. Not as multilayered as on the nose.
Finish: Rather short. Slowly soothing on a nutty flavour.
Comment: The nose is enticing. The palate does not hold all the promises. A young bourbon?
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Initially the aromas are quite shy, but there is plenty of dense, slightly spicy oak along with soy sauce, wheat flakes, dried balsamic fruit and a light spice note. With time some grainy spirit puts in an appearance.
Palate: Slightly watery with sweet spice, dried sultana, white grape and oak. Hugely tannic with some creamy notes attempting to offset, and like the nose some grainy spirit notes come through.
Finish: Dry and tannic, with the grainy spirit prevalent.
Comment: It feels like a moderately aged grain whisky which has succumbed to the oak.
