Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Mature. Seville orange. Varnished oak. Good weight, dried fig, bitter chocolate, dried orange peel. Shows some complexity.
Palate: Caramelised sweetness. Demerara, ripe and honeyed. Chestnut, cooked black fruits. Doesn't like water.
Finish: Continues to soften into peachiness.
Comment: Jura needs time to open and this is a good example.

Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Rich and luscious. Treacle. Raisins. Dates. Honey. Old furniture. White pepper. Walnut and coffee.
Palate: Voluptuously smooth. Thick, mouth coating. Chestnut purée. A touch of candied orange. Sherry.
Finish: Long, oaky, spicy and dry. Walnuts. Nutmeg.
Comment: The perfect dram to sip on Valentine's night but I am not sure I would spare some for my sweetheart. I wish it had been bottled at a higher strength though.
