Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Concentrated with big,masculine, musky notes. Darjeeling tea,resin and perfumed wood. In time a heathery smokiness,burning tarry wood,hint of tamarind and a little firework.
Palate: Big,drying and smoky. Sesame oil. The sulphury note comes through withwater,so I'd go for it neat.
Finish: Long and spicy.
Comment: An intense flavour package.

Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Oaky. Damp cider cellar. Moss,wet walnut. Coffee must. Wood is overwhelming. Shines a little with water. Orange curd.
Palate: Crisp,much brighter than the nose. There's life here. Cooked plums. A rich spicy character which teases the tongue without burning.
Finish: Dry,spicy,malty.
Comment: The nose is as dour as the palate is vibrant and full of life. Very strange.
