8.0
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Barley sugar and orange barley water with a hint of almond. Attractive, but a little unforthcoming.
Palate: Lightly oily and tongue coating. Hazelnuts, cherry stone then marmalade and soft toffee. Decent grip as well.
Finish: Crisp.
Comment: After a strangely flat start it builds in energy but somehow just lacks definition. Very pleasant though.
