Tasting notes
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Beautifully mature with that lovely aged tropical character – melon, apricot, acacia honey and sawdusty oak. Seriously honeyed with hints of barley, thyme, rosemary and fragrant malt. The sort of nose I could spend all day sniffing!
Palate: Velvety and super smooth. The flavours glide beautifully over the tongue. Mature, honeyed and tropical with malt, barley and subtle oak. Mouth-filling and deep with a superb balance.
Finish: Long and quite citric with a touch of coffeed tannin and herbal after-taste.
Comment: Simply gorgeous!
Taster   Joel Harrison
Nose: Takes some time to open up. Gives black banana when it does, with dates and hints of stone fruits. Vanilla and cloves complete the aromas.
Palate: A very bitter palate which eventually reveals those stone fruits, figs and marmite. There are hints of over extraction and burnt coffee.
Finish: Big spices linger with heavy charred oak.
Comment: Could be better balanced.
