Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Clean,very sweet and quite floral. In time a very gentle soft fruitiness comes through:caramelised pearand peach.
Palate: Very forward. Lightly nutty (giving structure) then the perfumed notes of freesia and the fruit salad effect.Chewy. Good balance.
Finish: Those fruits again. Creamy.
Comment: A lovely summery afternoon dram.
7.8
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Prickly. The alcohol bite is quite sharp. Grassy then opens on cooked fruit. Greengage marmalade. Verjus(unripe grape juice).Distant smoky echo.
Palate: Not as tangy as on the nose. The sweet maltiness tames the alcohol until a spicy.burst attacks the tastebuds. Chili,pepper. And this verjus touch.
Finish: Spicy,quite green.
Comment: Is that a young whisky? It gives an impression of greenness and something unripe. Water is a must.
