Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Faint smoky fragrance.
Palate: Still a lively interplay of exotic fruit sweetness and smoky dryness.
Finish: Fragrant again. Some woody bitterness but more restrained than in most St Magdalene.
Comment: Livelier, fresher, less \"difficult\" flavours than in most bottlings.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Gentle and floral. Wet grass, green fruit, violet, coal bunkers. Water flattens it a bit.
Palate: Light and delicate. Pineapple, grass again. Seems a bit tired.
Finish: Short, watery.
Comment: Brings to mind those fragile Swiss white wines. All very delicate and ever so slightly faded.
