Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: VERY heathery nose along with macadamia nut, biscuit, dry, hot bracken.
Palate: Clean and quite a sweet malty/nutty start. Good feel mid-palate. Very fresh and clean.
Finish: Heather. Biscuity.
Comment: A good, straightforward Jura.

Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Very light but aromatic. New make fragrances. Herbal, floral. Dry hay. Sweet meadow flowers. Wild garlic. Water brings out briny garnish.
Palate: Sweeter than expected. Light-bodied. Sharp and tangy. Malty and herbal flavours. Toasted hazelnuts. Definitely needs water.
Finish: Warm, nutty, dry.
Comment: Nose better than palate. A tired cask?
