Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Shy, fruity sweetness. Apple blossom and apple jelly with a creamy toffee touch.
Palate: Sweet and fruity. Quite refreshing. Apple juice. Candied ginger. Water brings out citrussy aromas and a touch of sawdust.
Finish: Dry and spicy with an oaky grip.
Comment: A fruity/spicy profile. Rye whisky shines through. Refreshing on a hot summer day.
7.5
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Stewed plums, grape must with some butteriness behind.
Palate: Very scented. Rosewater then the classic Canadian flow of sweet cream and a little nuttiness. Dried fruits dominate. Collapses with water.
Finish: Splits into spirit and dried fruit.
Comment: Everything turned up to 11, but that can't hide its clumsy character. More bolted together than blended.
