Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Pleasant tanginess. Fresh crushed white grapes (Italia). Cider cellar. Then freshly baked fruit cake. Hint of praline.
Palate: More sherried than on the nose. Rubbery. A smoky note (like a dying fire). Coffee toffee.
Finish: Long, liquoriced. Spicy dryness.
Comment: Another classic sherry, especially on the palate. No water please.
8.0
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Initially this is all fennel tops, then it deepens and sweetens: vanilla, maple syrup, spun sugar. Bourbon?
Palate: Immediate impact of spice: nutmeg, allspice and toasty grip. Good with water. Mature, woody, smooth.
Finish: Firms up nicely.
Comment: Want to get bourbon drinkers into whisky, give 'em grain! Maybe not 40 Years Old grain but it could be the way in.
