Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Well-balanced nose with sherried notes of orange, nutmeg, wine gums and vanilla. Water introduces a heathery/earthy smoke note.
Palate: Chewy. It's well balanced and juicy but with little jabs of citrus to keep you interested.
Finish: Long and mellow, starts cakey then comes pepper.
Comment: A fine, well-weighted pretty lush blend.
