Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Touch of acetone. Balanced, with a touch of oak next to the light lemon, green apple and fresh summer fruits. A mealy note with water.
Palate: Nutty with lots of vanilla. Buttery in its own way. Lightly citric with a dusty malty note.
Finish: Blackcurrant leaf.
Comment: Water diminishes it, so I’d leave well alone.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: A rancid note. The dairy hall after cheesemaking. Opens on grassy aromas. Fresh cut grass, a touch of lemon balm. Lemon drop.
Palate: Almost syrupy. That rancid note again. A bit burning. Hot chilli. Coconut milk.
Finish: Short but concentrated. Warm.
Comment: Unbalanced and sharp. The nice malty sweetness is swept by harsh dryness.
