Nose
Clean and fresh with a light yeastiness that's cut by a grapefruit like zing. the higher strength adds to the sharpness, so much so that water is essential.
Palate
Still clean, but juicier than the nose suggests. Sweet and gently fruity with some baked pear and apple.
Finish
Light maltiness and an old-fashioned lemonade touch.
Comment
Fresh and vibrant. Attractive.

Martine Nouet

75
Nose
Light, slightly sharp, grassy. A distant smoke like a dying bonfire under steady rain. On time, some sweeter notes. Lemon balm, dill. Lemon peel.
Palate
Sweet and satin-like at start. Then the alcohol sensation bites the tongue. Light cardboard note. The smoke is not perceptible. Develops on a fresh minty flavour. Water gives a velvety feel.
Finish
Short, drier.
Comment
A light whisky, a bit sharp when neat. Mellows with water.
