Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Sweet and impactful. Bounty bars and spiced redcurrant jelly. Pot pourri, smoke. Scented like a hedonistic male cologne. With water there's clottedcream. Deep and generous yet soft with an intriguing note of decay.
Palate: Silky with a scented lift. Immediate spiciness,golden raisin,kumquat then alight peppery quality. Balanced.
Finish: Green caradamom.
Comment: A more intense version. Highly recommended.

Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Intense,prickly. A varnish note. Fresh paint. Apple loft.Opens on licorice toffee.A hint of parsley. Crèmecaramel.
Palate: Flowing but quite grippy. Oak and spices dance on the tongue but not a waltz! Acid rock ? Quite biting.
Finish: Dry,numbing.Fresh oak.
Comment: A sharp fellow. Strangely enough, appears spirity although the same strength as the previous sample.
