Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Medicinal. Herbal. Lemon tea. But not much more.
Palate: Sweet. Slightly cardboardy. Fresh lemon. A hint of almond milk.
Finish: Fading quickly.A minty touch.
Comment: Very thin. Not delivering much. Like a watercolour faded by sun exposure.
7.0
Taster   Dominic Roskrow
Nose: Dough balls,buttered pastry,spice.
Palate: Strange mix of grittiness, dominant peppery spice andbuttery sweetness.
Finish: Quite long,very peppery,and very unsubtle.
Comment: Heavy pepper dominates everything else. Lacks sophistication and balance.
