Tasting Notes

Dave Broom

Taster

Nose: Very light nose with a hint of lemon and some rye flour but fairly insubstantial. Fragrant with water. Oak is firm and dry. Immature.

Palate: Limeade, quite grippy and tight and quickly runs out of steam. Strangely like a young Jamaican rum, all perfume and attack.

Finish: Slightly metallic again.

Comment: A wraith of a whisky. The spirit is OK, the cask has let it down.

Score: 7

Martine Nouet

Taster

Nose: Light and mild. A delicate citrussy note. Touch of lemon posset.

Palate: Fruity like a bowl of mixed sweets. Hint of liquorice. Nice lingering spiciness.

Finish: Dry, spicy, nutty.

Comment: A very pale whisky, tastes young but has got a fresh citrussy elegance which would make it a nice dram to be enjoyed on a summer evening. Why not on the rocks?

Score: 7.8
