Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Very held back and gentle but slowly releases malty notes, vanilla and a gentle floral tone.
Palate: Bit of an iron fist in a velvet glove. Starts gentle, lures you in the releases a wonderful spiced kick.
Finish: Sweet with spices.
Comment: A whisky to celebrate the coming of Spring with. Light and spicy.
8.0
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Light, restrained. Barleysugar. Cream soda. Floral and biscuity.
Palate: A thick syrupy feel, getting thinner in time. Like touching a velvety satin. The same malty and fruity profile as on the nose. Enticing and fresh. With a spicy kick on the tongue.
Finish: Medium, drying on dusty spices while keeping sweet.
Comment: A charming “whispering” whisky. Perfect to greet springtime. Needs a few drops of water to sooth down the alcohol bite.
