Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Perfumy. Citrussy. Lime and citron (cédrat). Touch of orange blossom. Delicate and intriguing. Opens up on sweet orange marmalade.
Palate: Rich, deep. Coating. Releases a full basket of fruit : the citrus fruit captured on the nose and also exotic fruit wrapped in a fresh minty mist.
Finish: Everlasting. Sensuous. Delicately spicy.
Comment: Takes you on a wonderful sensory journey. Like walking on an orange orchard.
9.0
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Sweet and slightly malty. Wheat chaff, green oak, banana skin, boiled sweets. Good nutty concentration and a hint of dried grass.
Palate: Light honey and macadamia nut and a hint of barley sugar. The middle is little lacking in power.
Finish: Light malt.
Comment: A gentle and sweet farewell to one of the gentlest and sweetest men in the industry. Farewell Gordon, we'll miss you.
