Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Not very intense but with a distinctive rye presence. Ripe apricot, cider apple.
Palate: Smooth, fruity, opening on an elegant rye spiciness.
Finish: Warm and lingering.
Comment: Rye is well brought in without oak overwhelming. Water brings in a nice minty freshness.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Corny, grainy. Seems young, or at least aggressive. Light though there's also a touch of cardboard and, weirdly, ricotta cheesecake.
Palate: Plain start then developing some marmalade, some thick Greek yoghurt and honey.
Finish: Sweet and clean. Little caramel.
Comment: Perfectly nice, but nice isn't enough! There's such a bland similarity between most of these you wonder if it's whisky-making by committee.
