Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Caramel wafer, almond croissants, preserved lemons, candy floss, a little fresh paint and some wood shavings.
Palate: Sweet with a lemon tart edge. Icing sugar and pastry, custard creams, then a drying element comes in.
Finish: Dries leaving a dense sweet citrus tang.
Comment: A pretty solid dram and well put together. Balanced.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Fruity and oaky. A musty touch then more fruit. Stewed apples. Vanilla toffee. Victoria sponge cake.
Palate: Smooth and velvety but followed by a grippy feel. Oak speaks up with a dry spiciness and an astringent note.
Finish: Dry, spicy and astringent too.
Comment: The palate confirms the nose with dominant oak. Water tends to tone the wood down a little. It lacks balance for me. But those who like oakiness will enjoy.
