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.
8.0
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!
