Tasting notes
Taster   Annabel Meikle
Nose: A tropical fruit bowl with ripe guava and mango. Fruit tea bags. Rounded.
Palate: Delightfully perfumed with waxy candles and red pear. It becomes very juicy -slightly hedgerow with rosehip and bramble.
Finish: Luscious fruit with a lingering finish.
Comment: I liked this slightly more for the lightness and subtlety.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Malty, rich, complex. Barley sugar, quince jelly. Oak is present but melted with fruit. Some citrus notes. More orange than lemon. Water brings out a distinctive pear drop aroma.
Palate: Smooth and satin-soft. Citrussy. Orange curd. Oak is well integrated. Toffee. A hint of orange liquor (Grand Marnier?). Gently drying on ground ginger.
Finish: Long, dry with a pleasant oak note.
Comment: Appetising and rewarding. Rich malty core, fruit and oak well integrated. To enjoy with an apple crumble.
