Tasting Notes:
Tasting Notes by Martine Nouet for Whisky Magazine

Nose
A strong sour note. Cider apples, cider cellar. Antique shop. Opening on sweeter notes. Caramel, barley sugar. A touch of burnt wood.

Palate
Dry and crisp. The oak grips the palate. Bittersweet apples, chestnut purée.

Finish
Dry but the bitterness has gone. A touch of sandalwood in the back.

Comments
An interesting profile. As the wood takes the lead but gives in to the fruit in the end. Not for the sweet tooth.

8/10

Producer's Notes
After finishing in the finest Cote Rotie casks for 30 months, this whisky has developed rich, summer fruit aromas with vanilla and roaster malt notes.
