Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Intense. Malty with an earthy note. Pine needles. A hint of resin. Opening on cooked fruit. Quite creamy and enticing. Integrated oak and fruit.
Palate: Oily,almost syrupy.Very soft and caressing texture. Oak speaks up more than fruit but the aromatic display is well wrapped. Water enhances spices but also bitter notes.
Finish: Slightly astringent. Nutty aftertaste. Fresh walnut.
Comment: An enjoy as it comes dram. No water please.

Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Similar to 15 with an added wholemeal bread note. Intensity and better integration. Good poise and richness of character.
Palate: Nuts galore,then a similarly slick quality that's been in the previous three. Rounded and better balance struck between crisp maltiness and sweet dark fruits.
Finish: Fruity!
Comment: This is the best of the bunch,but in general I find the construction of thesejust a little too obvious.
