Tasting notes
Taster   Dominic Roskrow
Nose: Floral with rose talc powder,dusty,like an old lady's boudoir.
Palate: Much weightier and fuller than the nose suggests,with rich apricot andstrawberry fruit,hefty spice and a delightful spicy earthiness. some tannins come through late on. Extraordinary.
Finish: Astringent and tanniny but not in bad way - plenty of fruit keeps it all in check.
Comment: This distillery surprises regularly. This is a gem,excelling in the finest company.

Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Earthy. Wet leaves. Moss. As if being welcome by a wet dog when entering a damp house.
Palate: Sweet at start then very peppery. Delivers all at once. Getting bitter.
Finish: Very concentrated,then fading.
Comment: Quite a dour character. I can't really find comfort with all this dampness !
