Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Huge amounts of creamy, caramel toffee mixed with butterscotch syrup - Hogwarts butter beer maybe? Along side orange peel that earthy note again, almond and dried fruit.
Palate: Chewy creamy toffee but there's a slight mustiness which diminishes it just a little. Overall though a lovely balance between sweetness and woody grip.
Finish: Soft and long.
Comment: Lovely, however that musty edge knocks it back.

Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Malty and oaky. Fresh sawdust. Cream fudge. Crème brûlée.
Palate: Sweet at start then getting an oaky grip. Fizzy and biting. A rancid note(like rancid walnuts).
Finish: Numbing and burning. With some fruity character (grapes and walnuts).
Comment: The nose offered some smoothness that the palate denied. Not numbingwith water but gets bitter.
