Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Erm...sherry. Then creamy toffee and rich fudge. A little dried orange peeland mango.
Palate: Sweet and that fudge note comes through. Seems to have a bitter burntwood tone to it too.
Finish: Drying and moreish.
Comment: One for the sherry heads, but pleasant enough.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Woody. Overcooked marmalade. Walnut stain. Candied orange.
Palate: Aggressively bitter. This is a wood infusion. The skin of a fresh walnut.
Finish: Bitter with a touch of liquorice (but the bitter root).
Comment: Bitter all the way. No balance. One dimensional. To try only if you are a 'woodfreak'. Surprisingly, water tones the bitterness down.
