Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Fragrant. Sandalwood. Gorse, bracken. Develops caramelised walnut and buttery notes.
Palate: Medium, sweetness muzzled by oak. Gingered rhubarb. More wood flavours as it opens up.
Finish: Pleasantly spiced but becomes bitter when water added.
Comment: Disappointingly on the wood side. For those who like it oaky!
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: A light, gentle nose with custard creams, lemon and with water some wood and a fruity jammy element.
Palate: Dry and very woody. Overpoweringly so. There's some citric, perfumed/lavender stuff trying to come out but the wood batters it over the head.
Finish: Dry and woody with that jammy flavour at the very end.
Comment: Lovely soft, vanilla nose obliterated by wood. Shame.
