Tasting notes
Taster   Arthur Motley
Nose: Mint sirop and an aromatic fragrant fruit, like guava. A good shake of spice, indicating a fair amount of age. With more time and water, lots of melon.
Palate: Intense mouthfilling fruit: oranges, apples and quince jelly.
Finish: Drying woodiness with a creosoted edge.
Comment: A real fruit bomb, dusted with spice. Deserves to be popular.
8.8
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Light almost lean, grassy nose: baled hay, light lemon, light peat. Has a mashy note with a subtle undertow of cucumber, sweet oak, earth. Water wakes it up.
Palate: These flavours are delivered best on the palate. Crisp and direct to start then softening into light toffee, ginger and a mouth-filling softness.
Finish: Hint of malt. Fresh.
Comment: A successful and intriguing balance between fragrance and dryness. Worth a look.
