Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Old, crepuscular. Rancio, tea chest, cedar and musk. Some dried raspberry, dried petals, and heavy toffee. A drop of water brings out an Armagnac note akin to turned earth and prune.
Palate: Huge and Ribena-like. Treacle and leather alongside smoke. Solid androbust, and again smoothes at the end.
Finish: Smoky and rich. Concentrated red fruits.
Comment: Multi-award winning -and you can see why. Mature, complex and elegant.

Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Granny's wardrobe: cedar wood, fur coats, old wood tannins. Leather boots. Also some peppery spice and fading rose petals.
Palate: Fresh and crisp. Buttered Digestive biscuits, Parkin cake and bonfiretoffees. A little cream too.
Finish: Long with a touch of fudge.
Comment: Stunning stuff that has aged well.
