Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Soft and biscuity at first; then creamy and fruity (raspberry ripple?)
Palate: Chewy. Rich Tea biscuits? Sweet and faintly charred notes.
Finish: Shortcrust pastry notes balanced by an appropriate late astringency. Herbal.
Comment: Hard to assess. Jammy Dodgers spring to mind.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Light, aerial, restrained. Green fruit. Sour apple. Garden pears. Vanilla custard.
Palate: Sweet. Pleasant maltiness. Rather unidimensional. Getting spicy.
Finish: Spicy. Black pepper. Aniseed.
Comment: Light on the nose, spicy on the palate. A pleasant companion for sushi or raw fish carpaccio. But lacking substance.
