Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Soft, smooth and fruity. Barley sugar, apricot, baked banana, tinned pear. Floral. Gentle, oak.
Palate: Soft and generous with gentle chewy, creamy mouthfeel and understated spiciness. Sweet oak. Bursts into life towards the finish.
Finish: Nutmeg, vanilla. Pleasantly dry.
Comment: A fine elegant whisky. The broadest and softest of the flight but with its own subtle complexity.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Malty, biscuity. Dry hay. Honeysuckle. Thyme. Summer fruit. Touch of lemon. Fresh and clean.
Palate: Smooth, with a gentle crispy feel. Muesli with nuts and raisins. Lemon curd.
Finish: Rather short. Fruit and malt sweetly keep keeping on.
Comment: A wee cracker. Nothing sophisticated. Clean, straight and well combined. Quite cheering.
