A sharp fellow. Strangely enough, appears spirity although the same strength as the previous sample.

Tasting Notes

Martine Nouet

Taster

Nose: Intense,prickly. A varnish note. Fresh paint. Apple loft.Opens on licorice toffee.A hint of parsley. Crème\rcaramel.

Palate: Flowing but quite grippy. Oak and spices dance on the tongue but not a waltz! Acid rock ? Quite biting.

Finish: Dry,numbing.Fresh oak.

Comment: A sharp fellow. Strangely enough, appears spirity although the same strength as the previous sample.

Score: 7.3

Dave Broom

Taster

Nose: Sweet and impactful. Bounty bars and spiced redcurrant jelly. Pot pourri, smoke. Scented like a hedonistic male cologne. With water there's clotted\rcream. Deep and generous yet soft with an intriguing note of decay.

Palate: Silky with a scented lift. Immediate spiciness,golden raisin,kumquat then alight peppery quality. Balanced.

Finish: Green caradamom.

Comment: A more intense version. Highly recommended.

Score: 9
