Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Lean yet gentle. Some cereal, flour, then comes polished oak. Water moves it towards orange and grapefruit zest.
Palate: Good flow with some spiciness, floral notes and a tingle of red peppercorn deepening into runny toffee and vanilla pod. Soft and substantial with creamy weight.
Finish: Gentle, if short.
Comment: I'm not fat, I'm just big boned.
7.8
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Sage. Chestnuts. Marron glacé.
Palate: Sweet. Very restrained. Almonds. Fresh, pronounced, garden mint. Aniseed.
Finish: Spicy. Soothing.
Comment: Gentle to the point of reticence. Aperitif. Or try it with Morrocan food.
