Tasting notes
Taster   Neil Ridley
Nose: Freshly turned earth, Humbugs, some mossy/leafiness cinnamon and clove spiced mulled wine, liquorice, Brazil nuts and dark chocolate.
Palate: Wow, very, very sweet at first, with a lighter malty note developing, some hints of acacia honey and fresh cream. Not at all expected, given the dark character of the nose.
Finish: Some more robust oak and spice returns to the finish, but you're still left with a lighter creamy sweetness in tow.
Comment: A surprising contrast at work.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Intense, fragrant. Dried rose, a touch of lavender. An oily note, close to fish oil. Quite unusual. Then some fresh almonds. Opening on fruit. Pear drop. Touch of lemon.
Palate: Dry and crisp. Some oak grip. Cooked apples. A touch of liquorice. Drying with a little spice.
Finish: Dry, spicy (ginger), astringent.
Comment: The nose is floral to start with then shifting to that fish oil note which disappears at times. The palate is completely different, certainly wood driven.
