Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Fruity. Pear Williams and peach nectars and hardly anything else. A touch of dry hay in the back maybe. No alcoholic sensation.
Palate: Sweet. Still fruity but without the juicy feel of the fruit. The palate does not have the appetising zing of the nose.
Finish: And the pear goes on...
Comment: A monochromatic dram. The nose is more interesting than the palate.

Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Green grapes, moscato, blossom. Hot gorse with water. Green tea and grapefruit. Simple but attractive.
Palate: All that fragrance along with a slight thickening quality in the centre of the tongue. Light malt. Falls apart with water.
Finish: Whipped cream.
Comment: All rather insubstantial but attractive enough though.
