Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Vibrant. Citrussy. Lemon curd. A touch of exotic fruit. Passion fruit maybe. Verbena; light and fragrant.
Palate: Oak shows more than expected. A slight cardboardy note. With a phenolic hint.
Finish: Tangy, peppery.
Comment: The palate does not have the refreshing appeal of the nose. Water tames it but not enough to make it really palatable.
7.3
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Edgy with a light metallic note: aluminium, green grass, geranium, whiff of sulphur.
Palate: Surprisingly sweet start with a firm grip and a very dry mid palate that carries a light phenolic note from the cask.
Finish: Short and slightly hard.
Comment: More in line with the first two. The most 'grainy' on show.
