Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Grassy, minty. Vanilla merges through in sweet waves, until flooding the lighter vegetal notes. Butterscotch. Develops on pudding notes.
Palate: Sweet, velvety. Lasciviously unfolding biscuity sweet flavours. Slightly over the top.
Finish: Dry mintiness with a gingery touch.
Comment: Interesting but a sweet note too far maybe but the finish gets a grip on itself and leaves a clean minty freshness. Recommended for sweet tooth.
7.8
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Yet another light one. Hawthorn cream and with water wet cardboard.
Palate: Better than the nose with surprising grip more oak than you'd guess from that etheral nose.
Finish: Mouth drying. Cigarette smoke.
Comment: There's just nothing to get excited about here.
