Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Light, floral. Orange blossom. A delicate aniseed note which gives the nose a pleasant tonicity.
Palate: Sweet, light, flowing. Grassy. Lemon balm. Garden mint. Dill. A lovely herbal tea.
Finish: Lingering, sweet and pleasantly spicy.
Comment: A lovely dram.Perky and tonic but in a delicate way. Perfect to greet spring when it comes.
7.8
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Very pale, suggesting immaturity, something which the nose confirms: it’s all putty/Play-Doh and alcohol. The aroma is improved with water where a lifted estery aroma is brought out.
Palate: Plain and very clean, but lacks structure and any depth.
Finish: Sweet and a little short.
Comment: For completists only.
