Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Sweet maltiness tangled up in oak. Cedary, creamy. Almond toffee, touch of sour apple. A distant smoky hint. With water, more fruitiness.
Palate: Vibrant prickling, with a big burst of smoke and spices. Apricot and almond flan. Hot paprika.
Finish: Warm, dry and spicy. Oak shows up.
Comment: A sharp character, full of life. Needs water to tame the alcohol. For an outdoor invigorating crisp morning walk.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Reed bed/wicker chair. Dry and crisp, slightly nutty with plenty of toasty pine-like oakiness. Water brings out smoke and some fragrance.
Palate: A momentary pause and then a huge blast of smoke, this time bonfire-like; drying crab shell, lightly perfumed. Another which starts hard (think of Port Ellen). Intense and quite dry.
Finish: Sweet. Medium length.
Comment: Slightly diminished by quality of its colleagues.
