Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Fragrant. Very fruity. Raspberries. Hint of green banana. Freshly squeezed lemon.
Palate: Sweet. Again a nice fruity display with a touch of fresh mint. But the high dilution (40%) makes it watery.
Finish: Hardly perceptible.
Comment: Has all the qualities of a nice fruit eaude-vie on the nose; But the palate isweak. Could give a lovely fragrance to a cocktail though.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Clear! Sweet, buttery, anise, lilac. Almost gin like. Perfectly pleasant butvery light.
Palate: Sweetcorn and cereal. Disappears quickly.
Finish: Nope.
Comment: Two questions - why bottle this at 40 when even a drop of water kills it?And given this fragility what on earth is going to happen when it goesinto cask?
