Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Nutty and oaky. Autumnal fruit. Medlars, cooked apples.
Palate: Crisp and dry. Sherbety. Oak prevails and frames toffee apples. Gettingspicier and drier.
Finish: Dry and spicy, slightly warming. Dusty.
Comment: The alcohol is not completely mastered. This whisky needs a gooddash of water and gets fruitier.
7.5
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Oak dominant, quite hard, dry bracken. Lots of bark-like woodiness, pine,garden clippings, old pine needles, vegetal, then comes sweetcaramelised wood and a hint of custard. Bourbon like...
Palate: ...but it isn't because it doesn't have the sweetness. Dry spirit and dry wood.
Finish: Firm oak.
Comment: Lost in the forest like Hansel and Gretel, but before they find the houseof sweets.
