Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Sultana, fig jam, hay and some earthiness and a little (appealing)burnt edge. With water there's meat stock, firm oak. Powerful.
Palate: Sweet and well rounded with a lightly brassy edge to it. Firm, sherriedand ripe.
Finish: Just a little edgy.
Comment: Young and still coming together but there's enough richness of characterto make it more than just an interesting pit stop on the road to full maturity.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Fruity and floral. Apple blossom and honey. Elegant malty notes.
Palate: Velvety. Sweet, maybe a bit soft at midpalate but so pleasant. Quince,medlars, cooked apples.
Finish: Medium length, smooth and sweet. With a nice spicy kick.
Comment: A very pleasant dram. Don't expect complexity but savour your pleasure.And get the apple-pie out of the oven!
