Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Big and sweet with oily qualities and soft sherry notes: moist sultana cake, cherry/red berries. Wood-derived aromas.
Palate: Huge and powerful with incense, walnut, chocolate and ripe rich fruity notes. Honeyed warmth.
Finish: Long big and nutty, with spice.
Comment: What a contrast!
8.3
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Heady and ample sherry notes. Morello cherry. Loads of vanilla. Old furniture.
Palate: Incredibly sprightly for its age. Speaks out. Trifle, toasted coffee, hint of smoke.
Finish: Very spicy. Cinnamon, ginger, hot paprika.
Comment: Bossily buoyant. Loses in delicacy what it gains in flavour and texture. Miles away from the Lowlands.
