Taster   Joel Harrison
Nose: Very little giving out on the nose. A hint of vanilla and... nope, just a hint of vanilla.
Palate: Surprisingly fresh, with a big grainy hit of green banana, zesty citrus fruit, pineapple chunks, coconut and other tropical fruits.
Finish: Grapefruit, more pineapple (tinned this time) and green apple.
Comment: Perfect to be making a long drink with. Pass me the ice, slice and soda. Not one for nosing and cradling, but for pouring, mixing and quaffing!
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Grassy and floral. Meadowsweet, angelica, lemon balm. Light smoke.
Palate: Very sweet with a big vanilla whiff. Biscuity. Belgian waffles. Tastes young. The cask has not left a profound print, apart from the sweet vanilla. Smoky.
Finish: Sweet, and fades quickly.
Comment: Not unpleasant but one dimensional. Lacks character and complexity. The cask did not give much.
