Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Big,layered and soft.Oak/cedar notes and smoke. Linseed oil, sesame,melted candle,wet vegetation. Light heather,peat then dried fruit. Great complexity.
Palate: Needs water. Rounded,sweet and complex with a concentrated wild berry fruit character intriguingly mixed with tarry ropes. Black cherry. Tongue-coating and oily flow.
Finish: Smoke,dark chocolate. Briary fruits.
Comment: Substantial,multifaceted and complex. Highest recommendation.
9.0
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Grassy. Heavy shower on wet soil. A touch of damp walls. Then it opens on toffee (salty butter toffee). Ginger biscuits.
Palate: Crisp, dry. The smoothness comes after. Quite balanced. Lots of cinnamon too.
Finish: Dry but soothing on liquorice and cinnamon.
Comment: A rich character,slowly displaying a beautiful array of spices.
