Scotch Whisky ~ Single Malt
Produced at

Martine Nouet

Light and slightly restrained. Grassy. Minty. Touch of cardboard. Opening on green fruit notes.
Smooth and sweet. Very soft, flattening in the middle but nicely refreshing. Peaches in syrup.
Lacks length but clean with a pleasant nutty touch.
This malt improves with oxygenation. Quite shy, it may appear insignificant at first, which it is not. Just pleasant.

Dave Broom

Austere and strange: lemon verbena, some smoke. Assertive, grassy, green tea, birch sap.
Lovely perfume. A delicate bone like structure. Grasses again. Flinty on first impressions but with a sweet heart.
Dry. teasing.
The opposite of its lush companions. A poet on a wobbly bicycle (Norman MacCaig?) I like its perversity. Regional style? Pah!
