Tasting Notes

Dave Broom

Taster

Nose: Fruity with a distinct spiciness. A general fleshiness backed with integrated oak, thick honey and the lovely smell of a cowshed. Broad and rich but there's a slightly greasy note which pulls it down.

Palate: The nose is intriguing, but the palate is flat absolutely no life to it.

Finish: Slips away unnoticed.

Comment: Maybe a faulty sample for this has no energy at all.

Score: 6.9

Martine Nouet

Taster

Nose: Fragrant. Malty and fruity combined with well integrated oak. Toffee, mixed dried fruit. Dates and walnuts. With water a earthy touch.

Palate: Smooth and velvety. The same fruit and oak combination as on the nose. A bit watery at midpalate. Medlars, coffee toffee. Getting drier and nutty.

Finish: Soft, nutty. Walnuts. Touch of ground ginger as well.

Comment: Well balanced and pleasant but it would have delivered much more at a\rhigher strength.

Score: 7.8
