Tasting notes
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: A dense but unyielding nose. Hints of syrup coated apricot and chunky, tight oak which is what is reining the aromas in. Late hints of herbs, wheat flakes and possibly some rye-like notes.
Palate: Soft and a little homogenous. Slightly coffeed and malty with again hints of apricots in syrup. Lightly herbal and wheaty, but like the nose the oak blankets and gives everything an over toffeed sheen.
Finish: Short and abrupt with a grainy, tannic finish.
Comment: The oak has the spirit in its vice-like grip!
Taster   Neil Ridley
Nose: Wow! Far eastern spices ahoy. Some wafts of potpourri, hazelnuts, praline chocolate and fresh cherries. It’s balanced and very pleasant indeed.
Palate: Sweet caramel notes, tempered with a spirity note, and some slightly tannic wood. It has a sort of old world vintage blend note, but lacking in complexity.
Finish: Tannic tea notes dominate, with a slight caramel note.
Comment: A shame that the palate doesn’t match up to the pleasing notes on the nose.
