Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Sugar icing. Starts with sweet biscuits, orange then it's all strawberry jam.
Palate: Light to medium-bodied. Intensely jammy, almost like strawberry/raspberry essence.
Finish: Sweet, quite long.
Comment: Is this whisky? Part 2. Seems to be flavoured. Good for cocktails, but this is weird.
7.3
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Resiny. Freshly cut oak. A forestry bouquet reluctantly leading way to fruit. Stewed plums. Vanilla and caramel shines through. Grilled sausage.
Palate: Very sweet if not too soft. Watery in the middle. Sugary and not much else.
Finish: Short, vanishing, colourless.
Comment: A promising nose but a somewhat worn out palate.
