Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Rich, intense. Fudge, cooked apples. Crème caramel. Touch of beeswax and oak floor.
Palate: Sweet and smooth. Lovely feel. Old leather. Dark chocolate cake.Candied orange.
Finish: Dry, oaky and spicy.
Comment: A real character with well integrated elements. Oak speaks up but in a well-educated manner. Can certainly make a solid backbone in an old blend.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Overripe fruits, banana split, cocoa, frangipane. A whiff of rosewood when water is added along with melting butter.
Palate: Gentle and sweet with honeycomb and a balsa wood delicacy. Has the slippery quality which you want in a grain.
Finish: Sweet, popcorn.
Comment: Like so many it is so hot! Why bottle at this tongue scouring, throat burning strength?
