Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Intense, enticing. Waxy. Beewax, Honeyed Victoria plums. Blancmange. Delicate. A sour note. Cider apple maybe. A touch of cinnamon.
Palate: Smooth at first but once on the tongue, literally explodes. Biting. Water takes some of the fizz away but enhances the cardboard note.
Finish: Dry, fizzy, leafy.
Comment: Disappointing. The nose delivered promises that the palate did not confirm.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Very intense, slight iodine/saline notes, green tomato and a powdery note behind. Very little cask. Leaf buds with apple pear and, with water, Brasso.
Palate: Hugely perfumed/scented. Touches of lavender which wasn't there on thenose, but dominates the palate.
Finish: Tart and short.
Comment: I'm an Inchgower fan but I'd want more from a whisky of this age.
