Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Crumbs in a biscuit tin. Straw. In time becomes more substantial:poached pears and cream quality. Peach stone. Flattened by water which also introduces a light linseed oil note. A little lacking in vibrancy.
Palate: Disappoints on the nose but makes up for it on the palate with a slow,juicy centre showing honey,cling peaches and pecan nuts.
Finish: Bread crust.
Comment: Just lacks brio.
7.2
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Initially close but after a while opens into a wonderful rich herbal bouquet laced with fruit soda bread.
Palate: Quite thin. A little herbal note comes through but I found it a let down after the vibrancy of the nose.
Finish: Malty,short almost not there.
Comment: Promised loads on the nose but has not really delivered.
