Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: It's green! It might be the colour, but there's a green olive brine/feta cheese note alongside creosote covered twine. Minty oily with some smoke.
Palate: Improves on the palate, oily and rich with fair grip. There's light coal smoke and the cheesy note doesn't intrude. Good length and balance.
Finish: Juniper and little smoke.
Comment: A quirky little number. Well worth a look.

Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Spirity. Seems very young. Grassy. Freshly cut lawn. Lemon grass.
Palate: Sweet with a cheesy back note.
Finish: Tangy, not revealing much.
Comment: That baby needed to be cradled in oak a few more years. It can hardly mutter a few aromas. Or is it just a maturation in a tired cask?
