Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Big, deep mature notes: white mushroom, molasses, toffee, vanilla/butterscotch, black fruits with teasing spiciness. Leathery and oaky, but balanced with smooth coffee and cream.
Palate: Smooth and elegant, sweet deep and slow: cigar smoke, raspberry, soft centred yet spicy.
Finish: Big and long.
Comment: Sophisticated sipping stuff for long evenings. Leonard Cohen.
8.8
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Minty rye notes.
Palate: Firm but smooth. Milk chocolate.
Finish: More complex and lively than its younger brothers.
Comment: Much more character.
7.8
