Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Leather,oak and sandalwood with fragrant lift of dried rose petal,orange blossom with a fat corn note. Generous and quite oily.
Palate: Immediate rose attack,alongside orange blossom water. Very sweet and direct. However all a little front-loaded as it seems to fade a little to the finish leaving little more than the oak.
Finish: Tight and slightly oaked.
Comment: This would make a great cocktail whisky and that's not being dismissive!
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Varnish,fresh paint,a touch of turpentine. We are definitely not in a distillery! Far behind,a fruity note. Nuts and pistachio. Dry apricot. The paint scent fades away very slowly. Walnut stain. With water,a pastry note.
Palate: Sweet at start then bitter. Odd taste. Wood and again this varnish note.
Finish: Short,quite sharp. Bitter. With water,cloves.
Comment: Strange sensation of going from a building site to the dentist's! I wouldnot say I enjoyed it.
