Tasting notes
Taster   Arthur Motley
Nose: Greenhouses full of tomato plants, Seville oranges, putty and fish oil. With time, burnt driftwood and heather.
Palate: More Seville oranges, arrabbiata sauce, heather and creosoted wood.
Finish: Clove-spice.
Comment: Excellent, although I was slightly put off by the fishiness. I think all fish are stinking, slimey creatures however, so I am admittedly biased.
8.5
Taster   Owen Barstow
Nose: Delicate yet complex. Sweet yet savoury, with a salty earthiness in there somewhere. Faint linseed character at the end.
Palate: Confident. Firm. Sweet. Salty. Pronounced phenol development. Fiery. Burnt and burning peat.
Finish: Warming and medicinal. Reminiscent of the aroma of polished antique furniture.
Comment: Easier drinking with water, but for full effect...
