Tasting notes
Taster   Peter Mulryan
Nose: Musky vanilla and mashed linseeds.
Palate: Firm citrus fruitiness, viscous and mouth coating.
Finish: Tonic water dryness, light sherry.
Comment: Not as interesting as it used to be, this brand is teetering on the brink of bland.
7.3
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Soft and creamy (coconut), acetone, then a hard metallic note reminiscent of aluminium cigar tubes. Peanut brittle. Has some sweetness with water, but there's some young stuff in there.
Palate: Light, soft, grassy. Vanilla, cane juice, apricot jam. With water a nagging harshness.
Finish: Dry raffia, wet reeds.
Comment: Distinctly average. Very disappointing.
