Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Freshly polished furniture,wax, preserved lemon,caramelised stone fruits,dusty leaves. With water there's apples in sacks and white peach.
Palate: Sweet start then a slow reveal,moving across the tongue. Sandalwood. Highly sophisticated, though with a certain fragility to it despite its fantastic length.
Finish: Gentle and soft.
Comment: A fantastic mature dram. A revelation.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Definitely an old dram.Cedar,old floor. Antique shop. Beeswax. Old leather armchair. Cooked apples in cinnamon. Then orange curd. A complex interlacing of fruit and wood.
Palate: Very smooth and velvety. The same fruit and oak mix. Cedary. Developingon soft spices.
Finish: Lingering. Soothing,keeping fruit all the way.
Comment: A beautiful old dram. Could not stay longer in oak though. You can feeltiredness coming through.
