Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: All spice and candied peel and the suggestion of an old whisky that has matured very gently. Very zesty and lively with tingling spice and a heavy floral note like lilies.
Palate: Sweet with caramelised sugars and a touch of rosewood. Balanced and discreet. Slightly less direct with water, but has a real subtle depth.
Finish: Long with gentle spice.
Comment: Elegant and sophisticated.
8.8
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Elegant oaky fragrances. Floor polish, beeswax, sunheated pine cones. Fruity notes slowly emerge. Pears in custard. Greengage.
Palate: Rich, smooth at start then becoming crisp. With a spicy outburst and a sherbety feel. Oak is present. Custard and liquorice.
Finish: Spicy with an oaky bite.
Comment: A wonderful nose, a dash of water cuts the edges. Complex and harmonious.
