Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Has a slight off note, adustiness that becomes quite nutty. Actually a little like the inside of 35mm film cases.
Palate: Sweet like a hard boiled sweetie, powder coated then fruit comes through.
Finish: Sweet again but well balanced.
Comment: A little sweet, but not quite at the cloying end of the scale.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Nutty but soon comes a note of stale pear, partly covered by a heady floral aroma Hyacinth? A dusty note again.
Palate: Crisp. Dry with a touch of astringency but acceptable. What we call in French “bonbon anglais”, sort of pear drop. Very confectionery-like.
Finish: Sweet, round. Soft spices.
Comment: Sweet if not sugary. Too much of these artificially flavouring candy notes.
