Tasting notes
Taster   Gavin D. Smith
Nose: Green grain, fresh fruit and acetone.
Palate: Clean, slightly spirity, simplistic.
Finish: Short and spicy, with a fresh oak feel.
Comment: Gives the impression of needing time to grow into itself.
7.3
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Young. That grassy edge once again this time reminiscent of wet raffia. A nutty, floury note. Firm with a very slight metallic edge.
Palate: Light and sweet but a youthful cereal, slightly hard core before a tantalising burst of peachy fruit at the back of the palate.
Finish: Becomes dry. Quite short.
Comment: Its youth just gives it a hard quality.
