Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Rich and mature. Syrupy notes, ginger preserve, fudge, steamed spice pudding, marmalade, honey, hard toffee. Layered, nutty.
Palate: Ripe. Very full bodied. Explosive spiciness: nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, but all bedded down in sweet ripe fruits. Even some passion fruit. Complex.
Finish: Spicy, tingling.
Comment: Layered, multifaceted, excellent.
8.5
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Resiny. Intense. An elegant oaky profile with a concentrated fruity richness. Apricot and marzipan pie. Toasted raisin buns. Beautiful creaminess.
Palate: Dry at the start then opening up on creamy toffee flavours. Oak is never far away though.
Finish: Dry, slightly bitter. Liquorice, chocolate, coffee.
Comment: The nose promised more smoothness. Quite an austere character on the palate but with a lot of class.
