Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Fruity, juicy. Sour fruit. Fresh paint. Quite sharp but very pleasant. Vivid. Develops on deep oak and orange custard. Faint smoke.
Palate: Velvety. Oily. Mouth coating. Multilayered. Spicy. Ginger and white pepper.
Finish: Long, loads of liquorice. Nutty aftertaste.
Comment: A complex lad. Needs time to smooth and release its sweetness. But worth giving it attention.
8.3
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: This is filled with the aromas of ripe apple, nutmeg, oak lactone and a soft sweet chocolate fragrance that brings to mind crème eggs.
Palate: A well integrated mix. Stewed rhubarb, apple and that creamy oak note. Water brings out a slightly bitter note on the finish.
Finish: Just a little too hard.
Comment: The finish pulls it down. Other than that, very approachable and highly drinkable.
