Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Highly exotic: Turkish delight, rose petal, anise, membrillo and thick Seville orange chunks. Damson and dark fruits develop.
Palate: Old balsam and herbs - strangely reminiscent of Becherovka - with mint and star anise at the front and sweet dark fruits at the back.
Finish: Again, not overly cloying.
Comment: I’m not a big liqueur fan, but this is a bit special.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Intense. Almost intoxicating herbal and spicy notes. Angelica, thyme, coriander, cinnamon. Orange peel. Exotic wood. The older version of the previous one?
Palate: Sweet and oaky. The same mixed oak and herbs cocktail.
Finish: Sweet and rather short.
Comment: A 40 Year Old liqueur? Certainly interesting and pleasant to drink. But the whisky is completely masked.
