Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Clean and leafy (green leaves), light nutty/hay-like maltiness, pie crust, macaroon and a hint of phenols. Water reveals a note like firelighters/leaking primus stove.
Palate: Incredibly hot when taken neat. Water calms it and initially shows hazelnut and attractive sweetness. Then it collapses.
Finish: Light smoke.
Comment: Once again not sufficient complexity or balance to elevate it to greatness.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Grassy and malty. Barley sugar, Weetabix. Cowshed. Corn syrup. Opens up on fruity notes. Summer fruit. Cherry jam.
Palate: Incredibly sweet for the strength. Flowing, custardy, then breaks into a spicy burst.
Finish: Dry and short. Slightly astringent.
Comment: The nose is more attractive than the palate, rather restrained.
