Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Candyfloss (cotton candy). Some oxidation.
Palate: Sweet. Spicy. Muscovado sugar. Digestive biscuits.
Finish: Cedary dryness.
Comment: Lots of aromas and flavours, but lacks structure. Curiously flat.
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Bags of fresh bread and warm dough. Then into citrus fruits and orange peel. There is a clear sherry profile.
Palate: Crisp with oak taking the driving seat. This is mellowed by the cookedoranges and dried apricots.
Finish: Dries with the oak.
Comment: A decent dram where the oak dominates nicely.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Malty. Toffee. Orange custard, A slight rancid note. Sweet jam. Marmalade. This rancid butter note stays in the back. Sherried.
Palate: Smooth at first then getting dry and crisp. Oak speaks up, softened by toffee and dried fruit. A light astringency on time.
Finish: Dry, crisp and astringent.
Comment: The nose is sweeter than the palate. Water takes away some of the astringency but leaves a bitter taste.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Robust. Is that a hint of Irn Bru? There's oranges stewing in a pan and an aroma reminiscent of badly maderized wine (not Madeira) slightly off-putting.
Palate: Dominated by wood, then maderized character reappears.
Finish: Flat.
Comment: A very peculiar beast.
