Nose
Very, very pale with plenty smoke, rapeseed oil. Hot sand. Delicate and sweet.
Palate
Lemon grass and smoke with a nodule of dessert apple like sweetness then begins to dry. Has decent impact in the centre. Balanced and restrained.
Finish
Hot and peppery, then flour.
Comment
Perfectly acceptable.

Martine Nouet

77
Nose
Briny. Smoky, even sooty. Creosote. Cold ashes. Wet sand and pebbles. A touch of bog myrtle. Haddock.
Palate
Satin-like, with a solid combination of sweet maltiness and smoked fish. Hint of dark chocolate, reflecting a slight bitterness. Fizzy at start but soothing on soft spices.
Finish
Very dry and sooty. With a licoriced come back.
Comment
A straightforward mariner which retains a pleasant freshness. You have got to like sooty whiskies.
