Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Pure, clean and fresh. Malty and minty. Green apple. Freshly squeezed tangerine. Hint of resin. Tantalizing. Honeycomb.
Palate: Deceptively sweet. Spices burst in a beautiful circus of warm flavours. Drier than expected from the nose but still so satisfying.
Finish: Dry, spicy. Toasted almond with an oaky grip.
Comment: A model of balance and elegance. A first class Speysider.
8.8
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Creamy and quite simple. Lightly floral, green apple, nut, sap. Water brings out copper coins.
Palate: Lifted, slightly smoky (burnt grass). Firm, toasty oak, heather. Peppery from mid-palate on.
Finish: Hot and peppery. Nettle.
Comment: Seems young.
