Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Light smoke? Salami, pulpy fruits, crisp oak, gentle malt, some resin, toasted.
Palate: Oxidised and fruity. Old pears, slightly chewy. Wood smoke from the middle. Slightly green, seems young.
Finish: Fruity then spiced.
Comment: Has some varied character. Good.
7.8
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Buttery but with a butyric edge. Herbal, aniseed. Shortbread. Dry hay.
Palate: Fresh, clean, sweet. Malty and minty.
Finish: Medium, some spices (paprika, ginger). A bit grippy. An earthy touch.
Comment: A decent dram, a little heavy on the palate though. You need to like oaky aftertaste to fully appreciate it.
