Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Light and fragrant. Grassy. Herbal. Straw. Garden mint. Elegant spices. Paprika, touch of curry.
Palate: Incredibly fresh and clean. Enticing, fresh herb flavours. Luscious sherbety mouthfeel.
Finish: Not very long but keeps the taste profile high. Tender bitterness.
Comment: As refreshing as a herbal tea but much more rewarding and fulfilling. Would suit a leg of lamb with mint sauce.
8.0
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Delicate and floral with hints of boiled milk and dry malt. Seems to have quite a subtle richness.
Palate: Fragrant blossoms: orange/jasmine and a chewy start, but a sour note spoils things.
Finish: Dry and soft then that milky note again.
Comment: Sadly it's just unbalanced.
6.8
