Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Fragrant. Pine resin, eucalyptus. Then opens on fruity notes. Tangerine, even a more exotic citrus fruit like yuzu.
Palate: Sweet. Unusual flavours. Strong resinous notes followed by sweet vanilla syrup.
Finish: Quickly fading, leaving a sweet taste.
Comment: The nose is pleasant but the palate does not deliver much apart from sweet syrupy flavours. Has obviously matured in a ‘different’ cask. Not convincing though.
7.2
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Here’s a similar but slightly more muted acetone note seen in a previous sample but backed this time with more dusty cereal - flour sacks and wet plaster.
Palate: The palate is similar to an eariler sample in the batch, but slightly less scented with more sour apple.
Finish: Clean and short.
Comment: Young and gawky, but there’s something stirring.
