Tasting notes
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: Light and juicy, the peat is little more than a distant echo. Sweet malt adds weight, but not much.
Palate: Much more peat on the early arrival, several layers of oak and then a brilliant rush of fruit and then more clean peat and a wave of spice.
Finish: Medium length but remains clean, crisp and softly peated.
Comment: Really impressive balance and complexity. Very laid-back and understated. Great stuff.
8.8
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Less obviously smoky than the Bordeaux finish. More perfumy. Drier. Dried fruit?
Palate: Smooth, light on the tongue. Develops some fruitiness.
Finish: Spicier. More lively. Seems crisp at first, but lingers very warmly, with late brown sugar and salt.
Comment: Port often leaves a toffeeish note, but not in this case. Perhaps needs a bit more maturity.
