Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Light, perfumy. Grassy and herbal. Verbena. Floral notes. White lilac.
Palate: Silky, light. Appetising. White peaches. Delicate mintiness with malty undertones.
Finish: Dry and spicy. But smooth.
Comment: A beautiful combination of fruit and malt. On a hot summer day (in Scotland?), I’d dare throwing an ice cube in my glass! Good heavens!
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Marzipan. Coconut, angelica, cut grass, toasted oats, apple, green banana. Light peat.
Palate: Medium-bodied and soft. Spicy, vanilla-accented oakiness. Maraschino. Tangerine juice. Light but good.
Finish: Smooth, slightly sweet. Oak floral.
Comment: Very fresh and lightly floral. Well-balanced.
