Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Light and malty/mealy. Some citric notes (lemon/orange peel). Water opens up the nutty crackerbread maltiness alongside some dry grass and dried apple.
Palate: Soft with vanilla, malt, a light nuttiness and a soft mid-palate.
Finish: Soft and lightly fruity with a hint of chocolate.
Comment: Very clean, well-made and attractive.
7.3
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Light and delicate. A mouth-watering full basket of fruit. Pear, cherry, plum. Honey.
Palate: Does not deliver the delicacy of the nose. Sweetness ends up in softness. Pears in honey. A hint of toasted nuts.
Finish: Pleasantly dry. Soothing freshness.
Comment: Easy-going, fresh and fruity, but the palate does not reflect the liveliness of the nose.
