Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Grassy. Dry herbs in the meadow. A faint bonfire smoke. Earl grey tea. Delivers more spices when wellaerated. Cinnamon. Quite perfumy.
Palate: Surprisingly sweet at start. Smoky. Then a spicy burst kicks up the tastebuds.A bit brutal.
Finish: Warm,slightly burning.
Comment: Anenticing nose,a gentle feel but the alcohol spoils the pleasure. It needs a good dash of water to be drinkablebut then loses some aromatic impact.
Taster   Dominic Roskrow
Nose: Smoke oily fish with a fruit compote topping
Palate: Oily mouth feel,but relatively gentle peat,tar and fish mix.
Finish: The whisky coats the mouth so the taste fades fast then lingers on low volume.
Comment: Proof that we're not quite scraping the bottom of the Port Ellen barrel just yet.
