Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Full-on mature rye which holds its power despite its age. Full-on ryeflour/sourdough starter combo allied to anise, laurel, face powder and violetroot. Complex.
Palate: Spice from the start along with good acidity, sour cherry/plum and greenapple. When it relaxes in the centre before it tightens once more..
Finish: ... and brings out some zesty lemon and menthol.
Comment: A very very classy mature rye. Highly recommended for the decadentboulevardiers among you.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Floral. Peony and musky rose scent Elegant, quite sensuous. Rich oak.
Palate: Very smooth and round. The same elegancy on the palate with loads ofliquorice. Turkish delight. Milk chocolate.
Finish: Drier. Spicy. Ginger and a touch of cubèbe pepper.
