Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Delicate, a bit shy. Gingerbread. Parma violet. Sweet potato. Hay, dry flowers. Water brings out a touch of varnish.
Palate: Fresh and straightforward. A malty touch then seems to rush through to a very spicy end.
Finish: Gingery, dry. Hefty.
Comment: A strange fellow. As if all was delivered in a dash. Then the finish seems to never end.
7.5
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Young and crisp. Green apple, green plum/plum stone, wet grass, cut flowers. A firm oaky counterpoint with hints of porridgy malt.
Palate: Medium-bodied. Peppery, vibrant. Good weight filling it out. Sweet and well balanced. Spreads well on the palate. Good grip.
Finish: Clean, soft grassiness.
Comment: A wee charmer.
