Issue 70
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Deep,very sweet red and black fruits. Humidor notes,sweet ginger and prune. Quite leathery with time.Sumptuous. There's a balancing nutty crispness and surprisingly,in time a lifted perfumed orchid like note.
Palate: Elegant in a robust fashion. Chewy with fruit pastille that's balanced by a muscular structure.
Finish: Long,smooth and concentrated.
Comment: Not exactly subtle,but one hell of a mouthful.Great blending.

Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Fruit in an oak frame. Citrussy. Candied mandarine.Cloves. A hint of lapsang souchong tea. Roasted coffee beans.
Palate: Mouth coating. Wraps the tongue in a syrupy ribbon.Deceitfully sweet. Kicks the tastebuds with a spicy burst. A touch of burnt caramel.
Finish: Dry,warm,finish.
Comment: On the dry and spicy side,but a good oak integration. Needs a bit of time to unbutton itself.
