8.5
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Clean, oaky and nutty (acorn/hazelnut/ground almond). Behind that there's soft creamy fruits, nutmeg, orange, cereal, juniper and dried grass. Very attractive.
Palate: Sweet nut to start. Well balanced with a fine-boned structure and a soft, fruity mid palate.
Finish: Lightly spiced.
Comment: Round, soft and gentle. A charmer.
