Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Fairly intense. Citrus fruit. Cumin and orange blossom.
Palate: Spiciness dominates throughout. Ginger shortbread, butterscotch.
Finish: Firm, a bit insistent, dries out on oaky notes.
Comment: To stimulate a sweet tooth when served with a fruit cake.
7.3
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Big and malty, with caramel toffee, honey, cream and toasted nuts. With water some citrus notes, stewed fruits and dried herbs. It has impact but no great complexity.
Palate: The toffee dominates but it fades a bit too quickly and fails to fill the mouth or excite the taste buds.
Finish: Nutty. Short and dry.
Comment: Lacks direction and energy. A simple starter for a malt novice but I'd rather have a good blend.
