Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: A quite distant, slightly lean, unformed nose. Sugared almond, fondant icing, pear drop, muddy field, peanut skin.
Palate: Fine-boned and intense. Good quite vibrant, youthful feel. Alcohol.
Finish: Very short.
Comment: Not much interaction between spirit and wood immature. Light and clean but lacking in oomph.
Taster   Arthur Motley
Nose: Cress, Jif lemon, pizza dough, bran and wet grass. Lemon pith.
Palate: Spirity, sweet and a little bland. A faint woodiness at the end.
Finish: Largely absent, but a soggy biscuit character.
Comment: I know, I know - it's a Lowland! Still, I want a little more from a whisky. Full stop.
