Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Smoky. Burning wood. Slightly tangy. Malty notes struggle to go through the curtain of smoke.
Palate: Round. A bit diluted. Sweet, malty. Smoke lingers and dries the fruit. Cooked pears.
Finish: Dry,quite short.A nutty touch.
Comment: Smoke shows up insistently,muzzling the distillery character. But some like it very smoky.
7.5
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Damp vegetation,railway tunnels, smoke,rain on cement,turfy smoke. Light raisin with plump mashy notes.
Palate: Turnips. Delicate smoke.Seems quite young,but subtle and soft with some appeal.
Finish: Dampened fire.
Comment: An attractive dram for sure,but just lacks impetus.
