Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Floral, sharp. Obviously young. Very close to a new spirit aromatic profile. Green oak, fresh lemon juice.
Palate: Smooth, silky. The same impression of youth. Slightly burning but also refreshing. Aniseed. A touch of pear nectar.
Finish: Short, quickly vanishing.
Comment: Why bottle a whisky so young? Or has it matured in a tired cask?Disappointing.
6.8
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Odd. Like an old-fashioned sweet shop. Fragrant, candy floss, boiled sweets, jam skimmings, oak, acacia honey. It somehow smells sticky.
Palate: Alcopop. Whisky and Red Bull?Destroyed by water. A light distillate with that slightly artificial-seeming fragrance overlaid.
Finish: Short.
Comment: This is weird.
