Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Distant. Dry grass, wood shavings/green oak with a mashtun like aroma to the back. Florist shop buckets. With water, cereal and moss.
Palate: Very light. Light grip (rice crispies) becomes softer to the back palate. A splash of water smoothes it showing soft fruit, a floral touch. Juicy cereal.
Finish: Short, clean, nutty.
Comment: Better on palate than the nose, but so fragile it shatters easily.
7.5
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Nutty, with a beautiful display of elegant fruity notes. Multi layered. Pears cooked in a vanilla syrup, cider apples, flaked almond pie.
Palate: Mellow but does not infuse the palate. Flavours are vague, like lost in a mist. A watery touch. The nose promised more aromatic delivery.
Finish: Gentle but fading quickly.
Comment: Did that whisky stay too long in cask? It certainly is not at its best.
