Two of Clubs
No age statement
Year of Bottling
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Estery. Exotic. Ripe bananas, coconut milk. Another raw bread dough profile with a strong yeasty note.
Palate: Quite assertive. The alcohol bite gives a fizzy feel on the tongue. Some fruit then a cardboardy note. A phenolic hint in the back.
Finish: Dry, tangy with a nutty aftertaste.
Comment: The nose is more appealing than the palate. Water tames it.
Nose: Succulent and vibrant. Mint sauce, camphor, dessicated coconut and cocoa powder. In time, quince. Powerful.
Palate: Pure, sweet and tongue coating. Sour cherry, liquorice and candlewax. The note is a little like incense cut with aged tea.
Finish: Ash and then ginger.
Comment: An amazing array of flavours and aromas from one so young.
