Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Big and pungent. Fruit and wood. Cider apple, damson plums, honey. Dark chocolate.
Palate: Sour fruitiness. The spices and biting alcohol is hardly tolerable, even with water. Wood dominates maltiness. Reminiscent of a rye whiskey.
Finish: Robust, warm, biting.
Comment: It's my first taste of North Port so I can't decide if the distillery character has been blurred or not by sherry. Like a bulldozer after an earthquake.
7.5
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Cedary. Newly sawn wood. Resin. Oil of peppermint.
Palate: Oily. Black chocolate. Bitter.
Finish: Drying. Musty. Woody.
Comment: Of interest to collectors, historians and the likes of me, but this Brechin brew, staunched in 1983, never made a great whisky.
