Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: A dry almost herbal quality. But there is fruit in here too. The smoke has almost gone into hiding.
Palate: Sweet at first then the smoke reveals itself and nails its colours to the mast.Very bold and entertaining.
Finish: A decent length with great complexity.
Comment: If only there was some summer left,this would be the perfect afternoon libation.

Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: That bamboo/hessian alongside wet linen (Mr Darcy emerging from the lake?) then comes exotic fruits,green melon,rhubarb,oils. Supple and long.
Palate: Big and substantial with smoke kicking in around half-way through, then heavy apple juice sweet/sour mix. Chewy and textured.
Finish: Long and elegant.
Comment: Great balance. When Madeira works it really works!
