Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Fruity and flowery. Strawberry jam. Muscat grapes.
Palate: Smooth, round. Velvety. Sweet fruitiness balanced by a refreshing sourness. Very pleasant and refined. Fruit gums. Blackcurrant. Liquorice.
Finish: Long, balanced, pleasantly spicy.
Comment: A beautifully combined aromatic display with a caressing texture. Delicious.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Deep and mature. Tarte tatin cinnamon stick. Fleshy and ripe with peaches, quince, cedar and complex. Sweet and rich.
Palate: Totallly different to the nose. Here it is all about suede leather fragrant pipe smoke and ripe soft fruits. A teasing whisky with great length. Oddly exotic.
Finish: Liquorice and treacle, then sweet.
Comment: Plump. A pudding whisky. Excellent.
