Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Lemon grass. Lemon rind.
Palate: Very light, but firm and dry. Sherbety. Lemony. Peppery. Some pepperminty sweetness.
Finish: Papery. Sticky. Fruity. Hot.
Comment: Flavoursome for a grain, but neither especially clean nor well rounded.
7.0
Taster   Doug McIvor
Nose: Gentle oaky herby floral traits, hints of caramel, raisins and reminiscent of plastic paddling pools.
Palate: Delicate, sweet to dry peppery swing. Sweet and sour grain.
Finish: Dryish, the grain teases against some salty extremes.
Comment: Charming but unemphatic. The nose promises more than delivers.
6.5
