Tasting notes
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Spicy and grainy with buttery oak, earth, fragrant spice, grainy coffee and a lightly herbal rye-like note. The focus is on the oak character. Lovely creamy, toasted, toffeed and gritty vanillins.
Palate: Opens with the toasted and toffeed oak, burnt at the edges. Gritty and herbal spices emerge but the oak is more tannic than creamy. Pleasantly vibrant and edgy though.
Finish: Reasonable length with lingering burnt toffee, tannins and herbal rye-like notes.
Comment: A lovely, complex nose but the oak gipped the palate a little too much.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Grassy with a tangy note at start. Grain mustard. But slowly giving way to biscuity notes. Digestive biscuit. Hint of cooked apple and garden mint. Delicate and shy.
Palate: Smooth then followed by a spicy outburst. A bit watery at mid palate. Getting really spicy. Chilli. Totally different from the nose
Finish: Warm, soothing on a nutty note.
Comment: A pleasant whispering whisky on the nose but an assertive character on the palate. The alcohol is biting. Lacks balance.
