Tasting notes
Taster   Annabel Meikle
Nose: A hint of cow gum and well oiled saddles. Grapefruit oil and linseed. Brown paper parcels.
Palate: A lovely cool but spiced flavour as if smoked in a hookah?Aniseed and maple syrup. Marmalade with rum on granary toast. Cola cubes.
Finish: A heat that rolled to the back of your mouth. Better neat I thought.
Comment: This would be good with food.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Grassy. Some putty notes too but there is oak to cover it a little here. Almond milk. Vanilla syrup.
Palate: Crisp and dry. Bittersweet. Leafy. Like chewing some herbs stalks. A cardboardy note with water.
Finish: Dry, spicy.
Comment: A similarity with the previous sample but oak speaks up here and gives it some structure. The astringency is too much for me though.
