Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Intense. Intricate bouquet of wood notes. Sandalwood, floor polish. Antique shop. Elegantly combined with floral aromas (rosehip, freesia). Sweeter notes break through. Toffee. Liquorice.
Palate: Smooth, round and delicate. Perfect balance between wood, fruit and spices.
Finish: Soothing on dried fruit and nuts.
Comment: A superb combination of fruit and oak, so well integrated.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Smoky and quite dry with a hint of rubber suggesting youth. Underneath this is a subtle perfume: moist banana, cumin powder.
Palate: Oak and smoke but there's dried peel, crème brûlée, orange peel and tropical fruit in the centre. Youth showing still.
Finish: Light smoke.
Comment: Not Yoichi at its most full-blooded and a little gawky but worth a look.
