Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Peach or orange blossom. Lemon. Hazelnuts.
Palate: Pancakes with cream. Orangey. Buttercups. Herbal.
Finish: Tingly dryness.
Comment: Delicately balanced. Clean. Drinkable. There is an element of luxury, but never quite the frisson of luxury that the marketing implies.
7.8
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: A little soapy without water, but with attractive perfumed floral notes and a hint of tangerine. Water pulls out some butter toffee, cream and orange/mint.
Palate: A lovely soft, grassy start which then opens into a lovely interplay between the soft toffee centre and the high citric notes. Good weight.
Finish: Pretty short which lets it down a little.
Comment: A good mouthful. OK, its not hugely demanding but a great introduction.
