Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Clean, dry, slightly perfumed malt: toast, wholemeal flour, oolong tea, lemon and a light touch of chocolate.
Palate: Attractive, dry and spicy plus a creamy light toffee note.
Finish: Dry liquorice.
Comment: Lovely.
7.8
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Floral, estery. Lavender. Lemon sherbet. Melon balls. Liquorice. Chocomint. Quite complex. Creamy porridge. Slightly fiery.
Palate: Tangy mouthfeel. Fiery. Reserved maltiness. Water dampens the fire down but disperses the magical fragrances.
Finish: High on the fire scale. Slowly calms down with sweet almondy notes.
Comment: Promising nose. Palate hard to tame, disappointing.
