Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Earthy. Forest floor, resiny, sweet, malty. Cereal grain, becoming nuttier and sweeter.
Palate: Starts with dessert apples, moving to raspberry.
Finish: This is where the Port finally comes through, and does so very assertively. \"Better late than never, \" it seems to say.
Comment: Refreshing, appetising.
7.8
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: An onion skin colour. Sweet, floral notes: apple purée, raspberryade, cherry, jam. Becomes firmer with water.
Palate: A mix of light dry maltiness alongside sloe, strawberry. Very sweet. Like wine and whisky shaken together.
Finish: Somehow sticky but thin.
Comment: A cocktail rather than a finish.
