Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Oaky. Sap, freshly sawed wood. New leather. Developing on praline andtoffee. With water, opens on outdoors fragrances. Moss, touch of vetiver.
Palate: Dry. Wood immediately takes the lead and displays astringent notesinterlaced with liquorice.
Finish: Very dry. Burning
Comment: One could expect more smoothness and refined character from a 17 YearsOld. The bitterness is quite invading but not inviting.
7.5
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Autumnal with lots of chanterelle/truffle, violet and rancio. The deep decayed concentration drifts into soy, and dense fruits. Fungal and funky with a feral foxy touch. [that's enough alliteration: Ed] Mature.
Palate: Dense and fruity concentrated with mulberry jam. The buzz of alcoholenhances the mystery. A big, rich bruiser that's rooted in the earth.
Finish: Big fat raisin. Sweet.
Comment: Another often dismissed distillery comes out swinging.
