Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Fresh bread with butter and salad leaves. A picnic in a field of daisies.
Palate: Fresh, doughy bread with lashings of real butter.
Finish: Lemon marmalade, with bittersweet peel.
Comment: Normally thought of as a light malt but this is a rich, viscous expression.
8.0
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: A dusty start (sacking/cigar ash) with a hint of putty, then mellows into rum-soaked dried fruits. Sweet and slightly savoury. Becomes toffee-like.
Palate: Surprisingly light, but has creamy softness and firm oakiness. Clean, orange peel, toffee sauce.
Finish: Dry, slightly oak.
Comment: An extra layer of maturity. Sweet and ripe but holding age pretty well.
