Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Very gentle and soft with sweet spice notes. Vanilla, toffee, lemon/orange and cigar smoke.
Palate: As the nose suggests with an extra (Greek yoghurt?) creaminess. Soft, sweet and gentle though the spiciness stops it becoming too soft. Great texture.
Finish: Long and soft. As on the palate it's the feel which seduces you as much as the flavour.

Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Sweet, clean, almost malty.
Palate: Sweet syrupy, perfumy.
Finish: Cedary, dryish. Appetising.
