Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Mature. Malty with dark chocolate-covered strawberries, some prune. With water becomes musky with hints of cedar and a gentle relaxed sweetness held in check by quite firm oak.
Palate: Softer than the nose suggests and significantly sweeter. Layers of fruits, cocoa, syrup, demerara sugar, coffee.
Finish: Cigar-like then softens and sweetens.
Comment: Great balance. An exemplary finish.

Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Shy. A grassy note. Quite perfumy and enticing in time. Water chestnut. Very elegant.
Palate: Smooth, satisfying. Oak is well integrated. Pear. Orange and almond tart. Spices burst out after the sweet release.
Finish: Medium, refreshing. Slightly nutty.
Comment: Delivers more than expected. Seems a bit bland at start but it displays an attractive array of aromas and flavours on time. The rum influence is under control.
