Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Slightly butyric at start. Wet straw. Cowshed with a whiff of creosote. Dry seashells, tar rope. Vanilla rising up with caramel notes.
Palate: Very sweet then drying out on smoke and soot. Definitely phenolic. Earthy roots.
Finish: Dry, sooty, vanishing quite quickly then sweet maltiness coming back.
Comment: Dour at first then opening up in a delightful way. Take your time to get acquainted with this fellow and you'll like it.
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Slow to develop. Delicate. Pine resin, wood glue, shavings. Toffee base notes.
Palate: Drying, then malty. Nice cereal development. Fresh egg pasta? Fruity (muesli?) character with water.
Finish: Smooth, confident. Sherry and bitter cacao in the tail.
Comment: Reticent at first, shows itself to be a well structured whisky delivering mature flavours.
