Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Intense, perfumy. Rich, buttery. Madeira cake, orange peel. Enlightened by a persistent floral note. Freesia. Opens on exotic fruit. Fresh pineapple juice. Complex, releasing waves of enticing aromas. Some salty butter fudge.
Palate: Satin-like texture. Smooth to start with then drying with a pleasant crispy feel. Baked apples, a touch of honey. Gentle spices again.
Finish: Dry and long, with a gentle astringency.
Comment: A superb nose, the palate is slightly restrained but still very enjoyable and harmonious as well.
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Shy at first, then this herbal maple syrup sweet note. Very honeyed, dark woodland honey. A lemon rind bite to it then a spice grip of cinnamon and apple peel with butterscotch.
Palate: Big and full bodied, creamy, oily and viscous. Custard tart and nutmeg spice, bread and butter pudding, plump raisins soaked in sherry. The oak grips with this spice explosion of cumin, all spice and cinnamon.
Finish: Long and spiced, full of honey and lemon, not unlike a good hot toddy. Then the spices grip with chilli warmth.
Comment: A graceful whisky all well balanced and integrated too.
