Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Aromas as dark as the colour. Prunes in Armagnac.
Palate: Soft. Fruity. Spicy. Cinnamon.
Finish: Dusty. Venerable.
Comment: After dinner. Or with a re-run of Inspector Morse.
8.0
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Big, intense, 'sherried'. Black cherry, raisin, wet leather, blackstrap, resinous, rancio. Dark and funky with some sweet notes. Promises a lot...
Palate: ...then the tannins clamp onto your tongue like a pack of terriers.
Finish: Bitter (cubed).
Comment: For all the interest on the nose this is not a great drinking experience.
