Tasting notes
Taster   Arthur Motley
Nose: Vibrant fruits: Satsuma, lemon pith and Braeburn apples. Sultanas. With water more lime and a slight oiliness and metallic element, like a hot engine.
Palate: More cute fruits, with artificial lemon and lime flavours.
Finish: Malty toast, made with wholemeal bread.
Comment: Certainly lively, but a little too astringent.
7.0
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Initial citrus notes (lime) soon give way to bready aromas: wholemeal flour, hot baguette, butter. Sweet with a sulphury underpinning.
Palate: Drier notes emerge: malt and a green, unripe quality. Things begin to turn bitter towards the finish...
Finish: ...and end up like cabbage.
Comment: That raw sulphury edge suggests an immature whisky or one where there's been little communication between cask and whisky.
