Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Sweet and quite lush. Strawberry and butterscotch, flambeed banana. Thick, gentle and honeyed/maple syrup. Oak driven (but not dominated).
Palate: Silky, gentle and smooth. The red fruits continue to show a link with bulked up vanilla and sweet oak.
Finish: Sweet and long.
Comment: Stylish. Though the oak has a big say, the spirit is holding its own well.
8.0
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Sweet and fruity. Redcurrant jelly. Elderberry syrup. Very dessert-like. Vanilla custard, crème caramel.
Palate: Sweet, so sweet, too sweet. Caramel again. Not so much fruit on the palate. Watery at mid palate.
Finish: Sweet, fading quickly.
Comment: Even a sweet tooth would find it too sweet! Soft and lacking character.
