Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Clean and slightly nutty with a distinct custardy note.Clean washing, gentle rose/sweet pea. With water a little green freshness, broom and brown sugar. Teasingly soft and probably has good age on it.
Palate: Almond to start, then banana and nuts. Tongue-coating. Vanilla, even a little condensed milk. Water brings out asun-tan/coconut note.
Finish: Mashed banana and ginger.
Comment: Lots of cask influence but it is balanced. Recommended.
8.0
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Autumnal aromatic profile. Cider, apple juice, hint of quince, wet soil, raw chestnut. Then some citrus fruit. Orange marmalade. Grapefruit peel.
Palate: The same autumnal display. Orange and pumpkin flan. Pears poached in a spicy syrup. Very fizzy. Spices dance on the tongue. Warm.
Finish: Dry, spicy, tingling.
Comment: Adram for a rainy day in November. A bit hot but comforting and rich. Better with water.
