Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Briny. Smoky, even sooty. Creosote. Cold ashes. Wet sand and pebbles. Atouch of bog myrtle. Haddock.
Palate: Satin-like, with a solid combination of sweet maltiness and smoked fish. Hint of dark chocolate, reflecting a slight bitterness. Fizzy at start but soothing on soft spices.
Finish: Very dry and sooty. With a licoriced come back.
Comment: A straightforward mariner which retains a pleasant freshness. You havegot to like sooty whiskies.

Palate: Lemon grass and smoke with a nodule of dessert apple like sweetness then begins to dry. Has decent impact in the centre. Balanced and restrained.
Finish: Hot and peppery, then flour.
Comment: Perfectly acceptable.
