Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Pineapple, peach perhaps with some strawberry sweetness. Clean, smoothie-like freshness with water.
Palate: Hot and winey. Sugary, but surprisingly clean; fruity and refreshing with water.
Finish: Sweet, sharp, cleansing.
Comment: Hides its 57. 9% completely on the nose; delivers it to knockout effect in the palate. Gorgeously light and summery with (lots of) water.

Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Delicate and subtle. Bakewell tart. Tablet. Lots of sweety notes. Grassy. Aniseed. Getting spirity as it opens.
Palate: Light and silky. Lovely herbal sweetness. Lemon and ginger ale. Alcohol is not tamed.
Finish: Medium. Almondy. A bitter edge.
Comment: A great delicacy but the strength needs to be put down by a good dash of water. But it is not enough to cut all the edges off.
