Tasting notes
Taster   Joel Harrison
Nose: Quite closed, but with time the reward is brandy butter and blackcurrant bush.
Palate: Ghee, chicken korma, hot butter crumpet and smoke.
Finish: Earth and hot butter.
Comment: Nice and rich, but (like us all) it could be richer.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Floral, delicate. Freesia, bluebells. Elderflower. Rich fruit. Apricot with custard. Rosemary.
Palate: Very smooth and mouth coating. Nearly velvety. Malty. Green apple, touch of Szechuan pepper. It is more the skin of a Granny Smith and even the pip. Incredibly smooth. The alcohol is completely tamed. A fresh aniseed flavour in the back.
Finish: Not very long but clean.
Comment: A pleasant cordial, fresh and well balanced. Water kills it.
