Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Concentrated baked fruit with an exotic note. Raisin, damp chamois leather and in time pineapple and earthen warehouse floors. Slightly fungal with a burnt note.
Palate: Full-bodied. Black cherry juice, overripe fruit, some crisp oak. Has an aversion to water.
Finish: Dry and oaky. Fortified wine.
Comment: A fragile dram. Interesting.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Warm and sweet. Barley sugar, butterscotch, creamy strawberries. A hint of straw and cow's breath. Young bracken. Touch of floor polish.
Palate: Satin-like. Oily. Extreme smoothness, close to softness. In harmony with the nose but less intense.
Finish: Soothing. Light spices. Almond skin.
Comment: More attractive on the nose than on the palate. Water spreads it thin.
