Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Clean and light. Gentle grated nutmeg, cumin, vellum, roasting coffee bean then into honeycomb (Crunchie bars). Rose petal.
Palate: A clean very honeyed palate with a crisp spice from the oak which then softens into melted chocolate.
Finish: A zippy lift which freshens everything. Vetiver. Sandalwood.
Comment: You could sit and suck on a bottle of this all day long. Worryingly drinkable.
8.3
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Spirity. Prickly. Herbal. Jasmine tea. Cider apple. Dessert-like aromas. Ginger biscuit. Trifle. Maraschino cherry. Shortcrust pastry.
Palate: Firm, crisp. Good feel. Creamy. Coffee toffee. Bitter orange marmalade. Ginger.
Finish: Medium. Quickly fading. A bit thin. Smoked hazelnuts. Becoming astringent.
Comment: The nose delivers more than the palate. Once more, oak overwhelms fruit and bitterly dries the finish.
