Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Ashes, spent pine fire, lilac wood. Slightly sappy. Toffee, dried guava, butthe oak seems in charge.
Palate: Ripe and clean with some red fruits but a little dull with water as if the life has been sucked from it.
Finish: Dry.
Comment: Slightly over-active finishing cask has had a negative effect.
