Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Oak. Lots of it. A slight rubbery/sulphur note which flies off revealing driedfruits and general jamminess. Vinous.
Palate: Strangely flat with a basket filled with fleshy fruits hiding quite aggressive oakiness. Heavily sherried,seems sweetened up. Slightly better with water there's cranberry and cream.
Finish: Thick and long.
Comment: Lacks balance for me. Overloaded in the oak department and also too sweet.

Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Toffeish. Caramel. Hazelnut fudge. A citrussy hint. Seems to give its best at first nose. A hint of fresh paint. A faint sherry note too.
Palate: Very sweet. Watery and sugary. Caramel again then some faint sherrynotes. Dark fruit. Raisins.
Finish: Quickly fading.
Comment: Does not give all what you expect. Like a too soft cushion. Not comfortable in the end. It would be interesting to taste it at a higher strength.
