Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Delicate, floral and grassy. Lemon balm, dry hay, honey. Gillyflower. Vanilla swirls up with a touch of lemon. Really enticing. Gets biscuity on time. Orange drop.
Palate: Smooth and caressing. Satin-like. Ripe summer fruit. Victoria plums, poached pears with a hint of hibiscus syrup. Drying on soft spices. Half-tone aromatic display.
Finish: Gentle spices, clean dryness.
Comment: An elegant whisky which makes me think of a charming watercolour. Relaxing, pleasantly balanced.
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Really shy at first, then in time a fresh malty note comes through. Orange barley sugar sweets. Hay loft. Dutch vanilla waffle biscuits.
Palate: Gentle and delicate, elements of fruit, honey and cask influence (sweet vanilla and clotted cream), all nicely in balance.
Finish: Spices start to build then slowly dry out.
Comment: A really lovely drop, nothing is out of balance here. Certainly one for a warm summer's night with friends.
