Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Rich in weight yet slightly dry. Spearmint, treacle, walnut. Mature.
Palate: Slightly oily. Sponge pudding, cocoa. Oak is quite firm but there's enough sweetness to balance.
Finish: Leaf mulch.
Comment: Seems older. A little fragile.
7.8
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Creamy, slightly restrained. Coffee toffee. Tiramisu. Polished floor. Old library. Orange peel. All well integrated and mingled. Elegant. Attractive.
Palate: Sweet and soft, a bit too soft. Watery at mid-palate. Marmalade. Nutmeg. Hint of cinnamon.
Finish: Long, gentle, a bit tired. Almondy.
Comment: A lot of elegance and distinction but as if it has lost health. Surprisingly enough, waters boosts it.
