Tasting notes
Taster   Arthur Motley
Nose: Lime, underripe mangos and slight sour bready note, like brioche. Spritzy and slightly grassier with water. With more time there are distinct chocolate limes and marzipan.
Palate: Lime marmalade on brown toast. Viscous, then dries out with a little woodiness.
Finish: Complex citrus fruits and woodiness. Candied lemons.
Comment: Enjoyable and distinctive. Like an eccentric old aunt.
8.5
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Broad, mature, with light turfy smoke and a sweet crispness like cheesecake base. Hint of sourdough, grass, autumn leaves, dry oak.
Palate: Very upfront despite obvious age. Another which is slow to open once it sinks onto the tongue: caramelised black fruit, toffee, brazil nut.
Finish: Surprisingly fresh and almost zesty.
Comment: The mental picture is of an old library filled with leather bound volumes and someone smoking a pipe in the distance.
