Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Soreen malt loaf, candlewax light sultana. Hint of varnish shows some maturity plum. Ripe and broad with raisin and light sweet spices. Balanced.
Palate: Light start then grips well in the centre. Cedar. Fairly tannic in time.
Finish: Orange peel nut and light smoke.
Comment: Decent balance. Worth a look.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Sylvestry. Pine needles. Wet cider cellar walls. Cooked apples in oven with cinnamon and honey. A touch of beeswax.
Palate: Very smooth if not too soft. Sweet oakiness giving way to a drier edge with some astringency at mid-palate. Ripe hazelnuts.
Finish: A bit grippy. Oak never gives up.
Comment: That malt could easily be thrown in a calvados blind tasting, with aged oaky individuals.
