Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Sherry, tobacco leaf. Huge notes of sweet Oloroso. Shoe polish. Cloved orange, smoky wood.
Palate: Smoothness meeting sweetness. Christmas cake flavours, dark chocolate.
Finish: Sensuously lingering, laced with spices. Smoky aftertaste.
Comment: Pure mastered (and mastering) Oloroso style. But where is the spirit contribution?
8.3
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Lots of Oloroso notes: rubber, walnut, dried fruits.
Palate: Good weight, nutty, soft, silky and fruity with some turfy smoke.
Finish: Sweet and sherried.
Comment: Good, but it could be any heavily sherried malt. Lacks an individual personality.
