Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Peachy, fruity. Coconut oil. Slight cereal grain oiliness.
Palate: Light but creamy. Grassy, sweet graininess, maltiness. Flapjack.
Finish: Powerful and soothing. Spiciness and smokiness.
Comment: More robust and less finessed than I remember.
8.3
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Resin. Spearmint/toothpaste to start then more cake like as it opens, fig rolls. Soft and juicy.
Palate: Soft texture with sweet nuttiness then a soapy flavour begins to dominate.
Finish: Soapy. Off-putting.
Comment: I tried two samples and five glasses. The soap was still there.
