Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Prickly, even a bit spirity. Herbal, yellow Chartreuse. Angelica, lemon balm, star anis. Develops delicate pudding notes. Vanilla custard.
Palate: Surprisingly sweet. Very herbal. Verbena, lime tea. With a citrus appetising freshness.
Finish: Drier than at start. Slightly spicy and fizzy.
Comment: The cask was too tired to give roundness to that elegantly grassy malt. Alcohol needs to be tamed by water but still...
7.3
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: White fruits clean and floral with touches of jasmine. Water shows a hard oak note before everything collapses.
Palate: Another very delicate dram. Apple blossom.
Finish: Clean. Very light, floral.
Comment: Has better weight than the Bladnoch.
