Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: This starts slightly cheesy - but in a nice way. Hazelnut, moist earth, dried herbs and the last of the summers’ fruits. Elegant.
Palate: Raisin and sultana allied to baked fruits with a touch of smoke. The grip is firm enough but not oppressive. Has guts behind the sweetness. Great balance.
Finish: Long and smooth.
Comment: Elegance. This is what mature whisky is about.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Earthy. Burnt leaves washed by rain. Sultanas and Dundee cake. Hint of sulphur there too.
Palate: Sweet, generous. Oily. Almond and orange cake. Soft spices.
Finish: Dry, lingering.
Comment: A multilayered Speyside with a touch of sherry. Well balanced and delivering.
