Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Deep,with toffee,sealing wax/teak oil, some spice (cumin and coriander). Water exposes the oak.
Palate: Lots of cask activity. Digestive biscuit, macadamia.Sugar and black cherry shifting into tobacco. Lots of oak but a sweet spirit underneath. Has age.
Finish: A little dry,but I'm getting to like it.
Comment: Best neat.
7.9
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Intense,fruity. Pleasant after a slightly cheesy but quickly fading touch. Cider apple. Turkish delight.Sesame nougat.
Palate: Sweet at first then the alcohol bite sharpens the sensation. Butterscotch. Spicy dryness. Tabasco.Touch of orange gingerbread.
Finish: Dry with a leafy note.
Comment: Seems to hesitate between sweet and dry. Water gets the balance right.
