Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Full-on, rich sweet nose: candy, caramelised oak, cinnamon cooked in butter, hot cross buns and honey cakes.
Palate: Big, chewy and sweet with a fresh oily zap on the back palate stopping it from becoming too cloying.
Finish: Long, slightly hot.
Comment: Big and sweet. Scale down the sweet vermouth when making your Manhattan.
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Aromatic. Cedary. Orange zest. Intensely fruity. Slightly sharp at the back of the nose.
Palate: Orange Angel Delight. Caramel. Toffee. Wafers. Dry oiliness.
Finish: Orange peels. Bitter orange. Ginger marmalade. Late, lively, surge of spiciness.
Comment: Some interesting flavours, with lots of dimensions, but no balance or structure. I'm not wild about Angel Delight.
