Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Another basket of fruit here. On the exotic side. Bergamot, mango, guava. All wrapped in a vanilla syrup.
Palate: Rich, velvety. A little waxy. Fruity but with an oaky note. With a spicy kick. White pepper.
Finish: Dry, orangey.
Comment: A comforting and well structured dram. Smooth yet crisp. Water flattens it and takes all the nerve away.
8.0
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Round, soft and sweet with a dry oak/sawdust note behind. There’s some cedar and lots of banana. Peeled bark and very soft fruits.
Palate: Crisp and quite tight and grippy but there’s a luscious quality that pulls it through. Gentle, creamed coconut.
Finish: Slightly dry.
Comment: Attractive and worth a look.
