Tasting Notes

Martine Nouet

Taster

Nose: Perfumy, elegant, complex. Antique furniture shop, fading rose, potpourri. Candied orange notes slowly swirl up.

Palate: Lusciously silky. Refined balance. Malt, fruit and oak are intimately\rintertwined. Spices explode on the midpalate.

Finish: Everlasting, dry and spicy.

Comment: An incredible buoyancy and vitality for its age. You think\rof Dylan's song Forever Young. Fantastic!

Score: 9

Dave Broom

Taster

Nose: Quite shy and needs time to develop. Even then it is more about a sensation than an exuberant explosion of aroma. Barley sugar, Seville orange zest and rhubarb.

Palate: Sumptuous and silky, with layers of dense, cooked black fruits. Massive\rcomplexity that slowly shows deep layers of ripe fruits. Polished oak.

Finish: Enormous, long and complex.

Comment: A slow, learned intellectual of a malt. If you are going to put out a 40yo,\rhere's the benchmark.

Score: 9.6
