Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Lots of luscious wood on show here. Cocoa butter, hazelnut, nutmeg, tablet. Behind the sweetness is raspberry and toasted marshmallow.
Palate: Similar to the nose. Water gives it a smooth creaminess. Big, generous and broad with rich silky tropical fruitiness.
Finish: Long. Silky.
Comment: Very smooth, but lacking definition due to the length of time in a very active cask.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Soft, creamy. Peaches in syrup. Lemon sherbet. A slight butyric touch.
Palate: Smooth, supple feel. Oak and fruit are elegantly combined. Liquorice.
Finish: Firm, flowing nicely. Liquoriced.
Comment: An interesting profile. Well matured. The butyric note on the nose does not echo on the palate.
