Nose
Sherry. Ripe red fruit. Smoke.
Palate
Winey. Body is sweetish and creamy. Nougat. Port-like.
Finish
Huge fruit. Cherry brandy.
Comment
A lovely digestif whisky.

Martine Nouet

Nose
Tangy, spirity. Creamy when aerated. Dates, figs. Marzipan. Black pepper.
Palate
Biting, fizzy mouthfeel. A lot of toffee and dark chocolate.
Finish
Dry, liquoriced and peppery. Turns quite bitter. Wood is blatantly overpowering.
Comment
The unusually high strength of this 23 Years Old malt makes it taste younger. Water tames the spirit but heightens woodiness. Lacks delicacy.
