Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Waxy with charcoal,stewed pear,XV olive oil,baked bread,burnt stick (smoke),nuts. Complex.
Palate: Slightly lacking initially on the front, then immediately deepens. Very oily and rich. Orange zest gives much needed balancing energy .
Finish: Robust and smoky with black pepper and liquorice.
Comment: Appetising and generous.
7.9
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Shy at start. Hesitate between cereal and fruit. Slightly meaty. Chicken stock. And a grassy scent. Like agarden after a thunderstorm shower on a scorching hot day. A minty touch.
Palate: Flowing. Quite light bodied but assertive. Warm vanilla custard. The alcohol bite and the spicy profile givea tingly kick.
Finish: Quickly fading. Dry spiciness.
Comment: Fiery. Lacks balance and character. Water cuts the edges but does not improve the aroma delivery.
