Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Oaky. Sap with a musty note. Damp wood. A hint of butterscotch. Autumn fragrances. Ripe medlar.
Palate: Round, mellow. A bit watery at mid-palate. Velvety feel. A refreshing liquorice character.
Finish: Smooth, sweet with a bitter tinge. A gingery hint.
Comment: A clean dram. Wood is well integrated. A higher strength would have given it a little more nerve.
7.6
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: There seems to be a fresh grainy note in here. Lightly floral and honeyed with a sappy edge and a hint of smoke in the background. Dry pastry.
Palate: Light smoke then flour sacks, before creamy toffee develops in the centre.
Finish: Lifts into citrus.
Comment: A good mixing blend, though this too fades a little.
