Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Vegetable notes,some cooked cabbage (sulphur) to start. Quickly into toasted nuts hazelnut sweetens. Green woods. Crisp with chocolate bourbon biscuits. Elegant.
Palate: All cut flowers,citrus peels. Quite a change from the nose,raspberry leaf. An intriguing rose petal dried character,little lychee. Fine tannic grip.
Finish: Ginger root.
Comment: Real character and finesse.

Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Malty and citrussy. Candied lemon. Opening on more fruit. Redcurrant jelly,a touch of blackcurrant. getting toffeish. Quite complex.
Palate: Lusciously flowing on the tongue. An outburst of passion fruit andblack currant in a spicy syrup.
Finish: Warm,vibrant,spicy with a malty aftertaste.
Comment: Rich and complex old fellow. Has kept all his buoyancy and liveliness. So different from the previous one (Tomatin 1967).
