Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Mature. Very heathery with cereal, light woods and a dry charred note balancing the vanilla. Ripe soft fruits.Grows in the glass.
Palate: Lovely start,all clover honey,cream and very pure fruit.Water shows a light oily grip before the heather returns. Light,but there's plenty going on.
Finish: Fruity.
Comment: A lovely dram..hope its new owners find some like this lurking in the warehouses.
8.0
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Leathery. Malty. Developing on oaky notes. Cedar,vanilla custard. A distant fruity aroma (cider apple).
Palate: Smooth,well balanced. Oak is well integrated,revealing a spicy dryness, balanced by sweet raisin notes.
Finish: Dry,astringent. Walnut peel aftertaste.
Comment: A somewhat austere but well structured whisky.
