Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Grassy, musty. Wet leaves, moss, damp fern. Develops on a tender vanilla note. Lemonade. Wafer biscuit. The earthy aromas slowly fade away. Pleasantly perfumy. With water, medlars.
Palate: Smooth, satin-like. Vanilla syrup. A hint of poached peach. Dries at mid-palate. Ground ginger. Touch of chilli.
Finish: Dry, warm. Spicy.
Comment: A clean spirit, drier and spicier than expected from the nose. A dash ofwater gives it a better balance.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Creamy and sweet with a note of heavily charred wood before envelope glue, bamboo shoots and a big honeyed creamy note backed by stewed apple.
Palate: Zesty and vibrant with plenty of nuttiness. Medium dry. Tight with fresh spices moving forward.
Finish: Crisp and clean.
Comment: Triple distillation heightens the aromatics though can't really see theoloroso influence.
