Tasting Notes

Dave Broom

Taster

Nose: Lightly malty with plenty of sweet spices. Water brings a fluffy citrus quality and butteriness.

Palate: Acetone and menthol. Deepens in the middle where it becomes quiet chewy. Better with water, those dusty spices adding interest.

Finish: Nutty and clean, with decent length, some concentrated fruit.

Comment: Balanced and with good weight. A good addition to the range.

Score: 7.8

Arthur Motley

Taster

Nose: Bananas, green apples and lots of dry woody spices. Mango lassi.

Palate: A big broad texture on the tongue with sweet pale sultanas, caramel and a sweet breadiness.

Finish: A little drying spice.

Comment: Yummy. Luxurious texture and sweetness.

Score: 8.3
