Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Intense and sharp. Grassy, becomes waxy. Distant hints of fruit. With water, opens up with cereal notes. A touch of coconut milk.
Palate: Starts smooth but quickly turns crisp and dry. With water, pleasant spicy flavours and less dryness.
Finish: Firm and very dry.
Comment: More refreshing and expressive with water. A fairly pleasant classic malt for an apéritif with oatcakes and smoked salmon.
7.3
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Fresh. Fruity. Banana. Lemon zest.
Palate: Flowery. Perfumy. Gin-like.
Finish: Spicy. Hint of clove. Some astringency.
Comment: Maturity improves it. Still needs rounding out, but less gauche than the distillery bottling.
