Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Very fruity and perfumy. Vetiver. Apricot and almond tart. An appetising sourness. Kumquat, pink grapefruit. Layered. Becomes creamier. Hint of pecan pie.
Palate: Like in the previous sample, wood overwhelms fruit at start. Green tea. Cigar box, blackcurrant jelly.
Finish: Rich, lingering, fruity.
Comment: A better balance than the preceding one. A beautiful after dinner dram.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: More lifted than the last one with dried lemon peel, dried mint, lavender and chocolate. Oak and orange blossom.
Palate: A let down on the palate. Flour sacks and some fragrance overwhelmed by a bitter oaky edge (accentuated by water). While it has energy and sweetness the tannins bite deep and bite hard.
Finish: Bitter.
Comment: The wood is simply too aggressive for the spirit.
