Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Acetone and other estery notes. Opens well if quietly, whispering (
Palate: Lightly fruity. Pure and controlled. Expands well. Fresh and slightly floral.
Finish: Light oak.
Comment: It might lack the layering you want from a 20 year old but its vibrancy is tobe praised.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Intense, a bit sharp. Fruity. Apples stewed in a vanilla syrup. Touch oflemon balm. Vanilla biscuits.
Palate: Sweet then getting fizzy and tickling on the tongue. Pineapple drop. Rumlikeflavours. Ripe banana.
Finish: Quickly fading. Slightly dusty.
Comment: This whisky is so close to a Trinidad rum. So surprising. You wonder whether this grain whisky has matured in a rum cask
