Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Rich,fragrant. An intriguing mix of floral and fruity notes. An orchard after a summer rain. Pear blossom. Sandalwood, Hint of cardamom. Opens up on pepper. More fruit with water. Raspberry.
Palate: Lively. Gently flowing and thickening on the tongue. Oak is well integrated.
Finish: Not very long but compressed. Soothing on sweet almond notes.
Comment: A rich and complex dram. Allow it enough time for it to unwind itsrichness and you'll be delighted.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Fine and clean and slightly oily. Intense. Bitter orange peel,rose, cranberry. Exotic spices and fragrant pepper. Black fruits and raisin.
Palate: Good grip with great acidity allowing the oils to flow naturally. Becomes increasingly spicy as it moves More austere than you imagine from the nose. Good bite with a rumble of peat.
Finish: Mix of dried fruit and citrus zest.
Comment: Intense and packs a considerable punch.
