Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Toasty warm with chocolate, honey and a clean, crisp maltiness. Thoughfresh, scented and aromatic, water brings out crystallised ginger
Palate: Very sweet, smooth and balanced. All the notes on the nose plus preservedlemon and a lightly concentrated, curranty mid-palate with a slick ofrunny toffee.
Finish: There's a pause and then you get a complete rerun of the experience.
Comment: Good presence and a sumptuous palate.
8.6
Taster   Dominic Roskrow
Nose: An almost but not quite sort of a nose, with Jaffa cake jelly fruit in the credit box, and something doughy slightly resinous and broody on the downside.
Palate: The orange theme is there, a touch of grapefruit before a wave of savourypepper, and a hot and sour note.
Finish: The spiciest part of the whole shebang with a not altogether pleasant andlingering after-taste.
Comment: Gets there in the end but you have to work for it.
