Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Assertive sherry. Rich chocolate. Walnut peel. Dates. Raisins. Prunes. Overcooked plum jam. Burnt applewood. Bittersweet apples.
Palate: Sweet at start then astringent wood raids tastebuds, sweeping out the dried fruit sweetness.
Finish: Dry, grippy, bitter. A touch of sweetness coming back.
Comment: A PX sherry first fill? Fine if you like oak infusion. Clings on your palate for ages. Too oaky to be OK.

Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Very deep in colour and aroma. Big, resinous and perfumed: fig jam, autumn bonfire, late-blooming roses, PX, musky. Leather.
Palate: Dull and over-wooded. High tannins and over-stewed tea. A tale of two halves. Inhale only.
Finish: Bitter bitter bitter. Mouth drying.
Comment: Old and over the hill.
