Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Dry and heathery. Light perfumed smoke, cumin, fudge/tablet, and with water rhubarb sweets.
Palate: Rich and soft, the high heathery phenols balanced by soft fudgey fruit. A good spread of flavours. It grows and softens then dries before ...
Finish: ... honey.
Comment: All you'd expect. A little less sweet than the proprietary bottlings but none the worse for that.
8.3
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Fragrant. Sweet honey, crushed almonds. Grapefruit. Marzipan. Porridge. A touch of peat.
Palate: Smooth, silky. Mouthcoating. Sweetness with spice. Hint of nuttiness. Beautifully balanced.
Finish: Reasonably warm, peters off with pleasant spicy notes. Candied ginger.
Comment: This bottling does not have the heathery profile of the official bottlings. Drink with water.
