The nose delivers more aromas than the palate. The alcohol is not totally mastered here. A few more years in the cask maybe ?

Tasting Notes

Martine Nouet

Taster

Nose: Perfumy. Fruity. Fresh juicy grapes, honeyed pears.

Palate: Smooth at first then the alcohol gives the tongue a kick. Oaky grip at midpalate. A nutty hint and some sweet vanilla notes.

Finish: Astringent but in a pleasant way.

Comment: The nose delivers more aromas than the palate. The alcohol is not totally mastered here. A few more years in the cask maybe ?

Score: 7.6

Dave Broom

Taster

Nose: Another delicate number. Scone mix, ash wood and subtle touches of perfume like lime and linden blossom.

Palate: Here you can more easily discern marzipan, gooseberries, lychee, pear and apple juice and a zesty drive.

Finish: Light juniper/pine.

Comment: Delicate but charming with good intensity. It's often unfair to put this very carefully thought out character in a line-up with bolder flavours, but with patience you begin to understand. This isn't Scotch, it's Mackmyra.

Score: 7.9
