Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Deep, rich, fruity. Greengage cooked in a honey syrup. Shortcake pastry. A cedar note.
Palate: Smooth, velvety. Rich Dundee cake, enticing burst of spices. Ginger and nutmeg. Oak is perfectly integrated.
Finish: Long, fulfilling, with a light nutty aftertaste.
Comment: A superb oldtimer. Rich, deep without ostentation. Well matured, perfectly balanced. Very satisfying. Better neat.
8.8
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Ripe orange, chocolate and toasty wood/roasting coffee. There’s a some floral accents on top with a little apricot. Impression of age. Stewing peaches and tasting marshmallows.
Palate: Intense, concentrated and very fruity. Conserved fruit. Clusters in the centre of the tongue. Sweet and soft with cinnamon and light ginger.
Finish: Oaky and slightly tight then dried coconut.
Comment: Old, yet balanced and still filled with vigour. Recommended.
