Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Aromatic. Hyacinth, raisin, dried apple, chocolate cake, preserved plum. Good depth and complexity.
Palate: Soft with a good steady flow. Chocolate ganash, orange, tobacco. Flattens a little towards the finish. Good grip.
Finish: Fragrant. Spiced oranges. Grand Champagne Cognac.
Comment: All very elegant and sophisticated.

Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Pastry out of a hot oven. Slightly smoky. Fresh pears in butterscotch sauce.
Palate: Light to medium body. Like exploring a box of chocolates. Milk chocolate first, then dark. Chocolate limes (perhaps the odd kumquat), then mint creams.
Finish: Liqueur-ish. Soothing.
Comment: Despite the rich descriptors, I found this slightly sharp with some vintage Glenfiddichs.
