Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Fishboxes, pier heads, light smoke. Somewhat reminiscent of a manzanilla pasada: green olive and saltiness (oh yes there is) albeit with smoke. Yeasty, vibrant, heathery, fresh.
Palate: Fresh. Marine notes. Immediate smoke, leading to a sweet, lightly oily centre. White pepper.
Finish: Vibrant, prickly. Turfy.
Comment: Elemental. Another classic...
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Beeswax. Old furniture. Black pepper. Boat rope. Wet sand. Touch of seaweed. Crisp bacon. Gooseberry.
Palate: Sweet at start then slightly bitter. Wood comes quickly through. Smoked meat. Smoked almonds.
Finish: Sweet and spicy. Dry.
Comment: Less peppery than in my memory. As if the spicy outburst on mid palate has been tamed. A bit harsh too. Seems to have lost its volcanic temper.
