Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Aromatic, with a bruised mint/peppermint note. Musky, heading towards camphor. Rose petals and, with water, a toasty/sawdust note.
Palate: A hint of soapiness, then comes vanilla and spices. Water softens things but it retains a sparkling sweet zestiness. Clean and fragrant.
Finish: Sweet wood sugars. Raspberry.
Comment: All very light and clean and highly quaffable, but just lacks a little mid-palate depth.
7.5
Taster   Arthur Motley
Nose: Vanilla, iced gems, wet clay, parma violets. Then a Radox pine character.
Palate: Banana chews, vanilla in waves and a grainy, popcorn character.
Finish: Astringent and bitter, drying oak.
Comment: Demanded ice, a hot day and a sizzling barbecue.
