Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Date, light resin, liquorice black fruits, treacle pudding, malt extract. Water brings out tomato ketchup, as if it's heading into balsamic territory. Great weight and complexity.
Palate: Rich fruits, plum jam, parma violet. This amazing concentrated sweetness means it needs time for everything to be teased out and a fair bit of water to cut the heat. Complex.
Finish: Long, silky.
Comment: Only 14. I'm amazed. A must try.
8.8
Taster   Arthur Motley
Nose: Treacle and molasses with some floral notes. This treacle character is prevalent. A bit of fennel, some earthy peatiness.
Palate: Sweet, simple with orange and aniseed.
Finish: An exhaust-like smokiness, and I couldn't quite work out if it was just the sherry cask maturation or a peatiness underneath.
Comment: Limited depth and complexity, but the dimensions this offers are bold and pleasing without particular off-notes.
