Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Vibrant and fruity. Pears and apples poached in cider. A little almond there too.
Palate: Lush and dense. Moves from a sweet start, with poached fruit to a spiced kick at the end.
Finish: Warming and moreish.
Comment: The sauternes influence is still there but the malt character is more dominant. Very pleasant though.
8.5
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Intense, fruity. Ripe white currant, juicy pears, cider apples. Opening on drier notes. Raisins. Marzipan.
Palate: Velvety. Quite thick. Sweet at start. Milk chocolate with raisins and nuts. Then releasing a flame of spices.
Finish: Spicy. Warm. Touch of Tabasco.
Comment: Rich in fruit obviously but the influence of sauternes cask does not seem as obvious as with the previous sample. The raisins note is more present on the nose.
