Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Rich biscuity notes. Honey and toffee. Shoe polish. Greengage. Vanilla ice cream. A distant touch of wet cellar. Water releases lighter floral notes.
Palate: Lovely velvet feel. Rich, oily. Complex. Oak and age give a bold structure to the palate.
Finish: Spicy, dry. Slightly bitter. Like gentian root.
Comment: A dash of water is perfect. Skip the pudding and enjoy your dram with a shortbread.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Clean and spicy. Lightly fragrant, dried apple, cinnamon toast, ripe citric notes, toffee, wholemeal. Becomes woodpile like.
Palate: Soft and smooth. Menthol. Light, with some flowers.
Finish: Toasty oak.
Comment: Has maturity and some elegance.
