Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: The deepest and sweetest on show. Ridiculous levels of honey and caramel and char. Black honey, coffee. Liqueur like.
Palate: Big and fat and slightly lacking in definition and grip. Heart-burning alcohol levels. Fruits slightly sour. Not balanced.
Finish: Floppy.
Comment: A no-holds barred glass, but doesn't have the class of the best on show.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Spirity. A bowl of cereal. Honeyed popcorn. Grassy. Green tea. Touch of angelica. Crème caramel. Lots of vanilla.
Palate: Crisp, neat. Orange marmalade. Very astringent. Oak and high strength give a burning kick to the tastebuds.
Finish: Dry, rather short, astringent.
Comment: Where is the pleasure? Even with water, one feels the burn, which covers the flavours. I am no masochist, thank you.
