Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Dark, with great waves of oakiness: cherry stone, old leather, treacle toffee, vanilla pod. Given a lift with sugary notes and a sprig of mint.
Palate: Tannic. Marmalade, sweet fruits masked by the oak. Water calms it, but the oak is assertive.
Finish: Dry and oaky.
Comment: All that candy floss, toffee apple and wood reminded me of fairgrounds.
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Burnt sugar. Molasses. Phenol.
Palate: Chewy malt loaf. Raisins. Burnt toast.
Finish: Not so much fiery as tingling.
Comment: The nose suggested an astringent palate, but there is some balancing sweetness.
