Tight and hard to love.
Berrys' Own Selection
Berry Bros. & Rudd
No age statement
Year of Bottling
Nose: Seems young. Slightly stony, shifting to nuttiness and a touch of kiln-like smoke. Plain and pretty hard.
Palate: As the nose suggests, penetrating alcohol and a lean flinty quality. Water is needed to bring out balancing sweetness. Direct and ultimately pretty hard.
Finish: Fades quickly.
Comment: Tight and hard to love.
Nose: Chopped, mixed nuts and a buttery pastry. Amaretto biscuits, honeydew melon and Granny Smith apples. Lemon meringue pie.
Palate: A sweet syrupy texture with vanilla, melons and lemon rind. Victoria Sponge.
Finish: Minerally and lightly earthy.
Comment: A bright, sparkling nose and slightly less exciting on the palate but still good.
