Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Mature with big milky coffee notes, butter icing, touch of chocolate, the comes oak. A bluff charm and in time almost bourbon like cherry and pine notes, old carpets, almond dust, tonka bean.
Palate: Immediate maturity. Mouthwatering. Slightly scented. Quite highly oaked but there’s sufficient red/black fruits to balance. Do not add water.
Finish: Soft lightly polished oak.
Comment: Good handling of fragile old stock.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Intense. Sherried. Treacle. Sultanas, dried dates. With an earthy character. Like walking in a forest on a wet compost. Opens on fresher notes : pomegranate, papaya.
Palate: Smooth. Quite oaky but without astringency. Dark chocolate.
Finish: Long with a walnut aftertaste.
Comment: The sherry influence cannot be denied. A rich character which should satisfy the licorice freaks. Avoid watering it. It gets astringent and grumpy.
