Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Herbal. Aromatic. Fragrant but the alcohol bite masks the aromas at start. Then smooths on rich cream (Jersey clotted cream?) and freshly churned butter. Gooseberry fool.
Palate: Surprisingly sweet. Star anise. A hint of passion fruit. Sherbet dib-dabs.
Finish: Quite short, fading quickly.
Comment: Mellows once the alcohol has evaporated, especially with water. A good summer refresher.
8.8
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Direct with notes of fennel, pine, green leaf and a tickle of smoke. Slight biscuity sweetness with water.
Palate: Delicate with hints of jasmine and elderflower and a tingle of alcohol. Very sweet with a decent feel, but seems strangely fragile.
Finish: Slightly lactic.
Comment: Almost as if it is still coming together.
