Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Good legs. A succulent yet floral nose: apples with custard, spice, sugared almond, marshmallow.
Palate: Medium-bodied but juicy and elegant. The first hit is a spicy one, then a fragrant, floral yet chewy, mid-palate.
Finish: Sweet then nutty.
Comment: This can cope with plenty of water.
