Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Cooked/dried fruits appear first, then there's some olive oil and cracked pepper. Peachy. In time a waxy/paraffin note which isn't as unpleasant as it reads.
Palate: More lifted and aromatic than you expect with a light zestiness. Good balance.
Finish: Light smoke. Layered fruits.
Comment: Full but very well balanced for such an ancient character.
Taster   Arthur Motley
Nose: A meaty note mixes with sherbet-like element. Water brings out some lighter fruity notes, like tinned peaches and possibly a little floral element. Some mint sirop.
Palate: Bready and malty, with sweet Hob Nob biscuits. A little orange too.
Finish: Oak.
Comment: A heavy old malt which seemed a bit flabby in places.
