Tasting Notes

Dave Broom

Taster

Nose: Seems to occupy a mid-point between the previous pair. Suet pudding, proving bread, opening into porridge with (gasp!) sugar and dried fruit. Butterscotch and honey again.

Palate: Slightly yeasty with intense citrus that's shifting into wax. Demerara\rsugar and lightly minty.

Finish: Gently smoky with light spice.

Comment: Balanced and lightly complex.

Score: 7.9

Rob Allanson

Taster

Nose: Fragrant moving to honey and vanilla cake. A touch of warmed tyre. Toffee in\rwaxed wrappers.

Palate: Sweet all the way. A few fruit notes and a gentle oak grip.

Finish: Sweet and fruity.

Comment: Another summertime dram.
