Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Hugely ripe with good weight. Paprika smoky spiciness,dried orange peel, shoe leather. A balance between dry nuttiness,earthy sweetness and deep fruits. Lime and chocolate.
Palate: Medium-bodied and smooth with some prickly heat (that paprika again) which perks things up. Fresh start,into liquorice,roast chestnut,mulberry and a hint of smoke. Ginger and salt.
Finish: Orange zest. Slightly oily.
Comment: Abelter. Highly recommended.
8.3
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Grassy,floral. A mix of wet grass and wet dog. Opens on malty notes. Cerealbowl. A sour note of cider apple.
Palate: Sweet at start but stiffening on dry spices. Vanilla fudge. Hint of salt.
Finish: Gently spicy with a slight nutty note.
Comment: A decent dram. Nose and palate are miles apart but why not ? We couldhave expected more complexity.
