Taster   Arthur Motley
Nose: Lots of ripe fruits: banana, kiwi, pink grapefruit and melon. Cutting through this are other notes of grappa, sappy wood, fennel and tomato stalks.
Palate: Sweet peach, a little peat and sweet vanilla.
Finish: Grapefruit and drying woodiness.
Comment: Another nose that produces involuntary smugness.
8.8
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Very light and scented. Citrus, beeswax, coconut powder, coumarin/herbs/pot pourri. Barely seems anchored.
Palate: Fragrant, floral and delicate. Rather fragile and slightly thinner than 16.
Finish: Smoke.
Comment: A ghost-like dram almost too elusive to grasp.
