Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Clean, light and appetising with hints of an appealingly burnt depth. Wet green leaves and meat stock mixed with bamboo shoots.
Palate: Quite juicy on the mid-palate where there's a lychee like blandness playingoff against earthiness.
Finish: A quick exit.
Comment: Yes, it's a-typical but it's also a delicious dram. I'd have it neat.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Light and delicate. Floral. Apple blossom. A chalky note. Lemonade. Allvery subtle and ethereal.
Palate: Smooth, round and silky. Very refreshing. Aniseed drops. Lime juice.
Finish: Medium, dry with light almond.
Comment: That whisky struggles to stand out among a flight of big sherry guys, but it is worth enjoying. Though we could have expected more character from a 27 Years Old whisky.
