Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Full, sweet and concentrated. Semi-dried summer fruits, banana, dried coconut, sandalwood. Exotic and complex.
Palate: Smoky and rich yet still lifted. Imagine barbecueing fresh pineapple. Good grip and some acidity. Wet chamois leather clinging to the tongue, while above is almond and unripe melon.
Finish: Long and elegant.
Comment: Fascinating. Hanyu does it again!
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Tangy, malty and fruity. Raw bread dough with a hint of yeast. Sour apples. Cider cellar. A dash of water releases earthy notes.
Palate: Oak speaks up. A bitter/sour note of fermenting apple with a touch of must.
Finish: Oaky and spicy (white pepper).
Comment: Water cuts the edges a little but does not mellow the sourness.
