Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Thick, creamy yet malty nose with concentrated fruits: apricot, orange peel, tarte tatin, vanilla pod.
Palate: Real presence in the mouth. Ripe and well-rounded with banana/orange.
Finish: Rich, with woody notes.
Comment: This works as a finish. The slight woodiness just knocks it down a mark or two-and it doesn't like water.
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Biscuity. Shortbread. Dundee cake. Cellar.
Palate: Buttery and nutty. Crushed apples, cider. Vanilla. A sweet note of peach marmalade.
Finish: Too much softness. Gentle spiciness.
Comment: Not easy to evaluate what sauternes casks have brought in. An extra sweetness maybe but no particular sauternes aromas. Appreciable bottling strength.
