Nose
Initially, it's grass, light chalk dust then some cream. As it opens out comes blossom, banana and cinnamon.
Palate
Decent weight and suppleness with just sufficient spiciness, ginger especially, to balance those opulent fruit notes.
Finish
Apricot.
Comment
Another deliciously drinkable dram from an increasingly impressive bottler.

Martine Nouet

Nose
Fruity and malty. Apple jelly. Barley sugar. Golden syrup. Appetising. Like walking in a Norman orchard in autumn when the crop of apples are being picked.
Palate
Smooth and round. The same apple character. Sweet and balanced. Dry spices (allspice and ground ginger).
Finish
Sweet, drying on liquorice root notes. Rather short.
Comment
A pleasant whisky, definitely autumnal and uplifting.
