Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Rich and creamy. Mint toffee. Then stewed fruit. Cooked peaches andpears. Getting nutty in a pastry style. Praline, toasted hazelnuts.
Palate: Smooth, satin-like. Sweet malty and fruity flavours followed by a spicy kick.Getting drier, with a refreshing minty character as well.
Finish: Intense, spicy and minty.
Comment: The nose promised a sweeter palate which remains a bit behind. Notunpleasant but slightly disappointing.
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Very rich and dense at first. Kendal Mint cake and chocolate. Some berrycompote. Roasted and honeyed walnuts too.
Palate: Malt loaf and butter, very smooth then builds to a spicy crescendo with hintsof mint green tea leaves.
Finish: Focused on the spices and long.
Comment: A well integrated whisky that is very appealing and wants you to keep trying it.
