Neil Ridley

Nose
Wet tissue paper, cloudy apple juice, old leather and cocoa powder. An odd combo, but also strangely enlightening.
Palate
Very dry, digging right into the tastebuds, but then the juiciness arrives; blackcurrant, fresh rhubarb, malted chocolate and menthol/minty notes. A resonant whisky indeed.
Finish
The blackcurrant subsides, leaving a tingling combination of chocolate and fruit sherbet.
Comment
Robust enough to hold its own after a lavish dessert – a choice worth considering if holding a little evening soirée.

Martine Nouet

Nose
Restrained. Not very expressive. A light floral aroma. Elderberry, sweet white flowers. Pomegranate syrup.
Palate
Light and crisp. Sweet vanilla syrup. Not much more.
Finish
Dry and slightly astringent.
Comment
A shy whisky with a restrained aromatic profile.
