Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Lots of fruit and sweet notes then turns more to burnt sugar with a hint of coffee. Layers of pepper and a little smoke too.
Palate: Big and chewy with a slightly bittersweet oak touch. Just a hint of ginger and dried herbs.
Finish: Hot and peppery.
Comment: Very complex but very appealing.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Fruity and malty. Pear drop. It slowly opens up on lovely vanilla syrup and light toffee. A pleasant herbal note. Green tea mixed with basil. With water ran earthy and peaty touch.
Palate: Firm but round. Oak is more present than on the nose but pleasantly frames the malty flavours; and again this herbal character.
Finish: Dry, slightly spicy.
Comment: A well structured dram. More appreciated neat than diluted. Water enhances oak and bitterness.
