8.0
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Grassy. Somewhat harsh. Not much expression of maturation. The colour is very pale for a 12 Year Old whisky. A citrussy hint. Yeasty.
Palate: Sweet and fresh. More fruit than on the nose. Ripe pear, lemonade. Sherbety.
Finish: Dry and short. Ginger ale.
Comment: A pleasant refreshing feel on the palate but a thin aromatic profile.
