Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Mealy with notes of pancake batter and dry wood shavings. There's some smoke and a youthful, putty-like edge. With water it shows youthfulness.
Palate: Initially it has better balance and depth than the nose, though it still appears tight before a huge blast of parma violets comes through and, with water, a little soapiness.
Finish: Firm and lightly smoky.
Comment: A step down from the previous versions. Seek those out.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Intense. Floral. With an earthy character. Gillyflowers. A hint of smoked oysters. Some vanilla slowly creeping in. In time, creosote.
Palate: Sweet at start, followed by a strong earthy flavour with some mustiness inthe back. Touch of liquorice. Very dry.
Finish: Short and quickly fading.
Comment: The nose is appealing. This batch No.3 does not have the 'guts'
