Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Farmyard. Wet straw, wet washing. Some bready notes behind. Strangely funky.
Palate: Good layering. Very soft. Charred smoke. Clean heat. Fresh with a little caramel, hazelnut, slight saltiness, then bran.
Finish: Crisp.
Comment: Odd nose but decent palate.
7.5
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Citrussy with an off note. Some lactic sourness. Orange drop. Cereal bowl. Cut grass. Not very expressive.
Palate: Sweet at first then a sour note. The fresh citrussy note of the nose is not there.Water enhances a cardboard flavour.
Finish: Dry, harsh. With a bitter aftertaste.
Comment: Difficult to assess this whisky. It does not reveal definite aromas, just a feel of hardness. Not inviting.
