Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Restrained. Flowery. Mint cream. Fudge. Opens up on balsamic touch. Cedar.
Palate: Very creamy and soft. Crème brûlée. Cherry flan. Stewed apricots with almonds. Very Cognac-like. Oak is present but beautifully integrated, interlaced with fruit.
Finish: Good length, spices and fruit nicely proportioned.
Comment: Shy at first but cheering up on cake aromas. A liquid pudding.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Another sweetie, this time with barley sugar, apple, fondant icing, tangerine and lemon. Creamy with a tropical fruit edge. Good depth.
Palate: A lovely sweet layered effect. Orange peel, banana split. Water brings out coconut cream and a nutty oak along with an explosion of spices.
Finish: Full, ripe, long.
Comment: While it might not have the complexity of the best malts here it's a cracking example of a mature grain.
