CHARLES MACLEAN TASTING NOTES
Appearance: Deep polished rosewood, with crimson lights. Slow, thick legs, indicating texture.
Aroma: A profound and mellow nose-feel, lightly nose-drying. The top notes are of Christmas cake with burnt edges, with toasted flaked almonds, becoming gamey and meaty after a while (roast grouse).
The mid-notes are both fruity (old Madeira) and floral - a heady, scented fragrance of tropical lilies on a hot night. The base note is reminiscent of burnt toffee.
Palate: A creamy, mouth-filling texture and a sweet taste overall, with treacle toffee in mid-palate and a suggestion of wine-marinaded and glazed pork. Then a perfumed finish, pleasantly mouth-cooling with
lingering warm spice.
Comment: Rich, mellow and rounded, layered and complex, with each layer of aroma and taste revealing itself in turn. Sensational!
Inviting - and worthy of - long contemplation!
“2Masters allows us to participate in something different, without missing our tradition, nor the tradition of Dictador. Both companies have an exciting story behind them, which has already been written. But with 2Masters, we are writing together a new chapter of that story (…) with true enthusiasm, to achieve a product that goes beyond excellence. We hope that this step that we are now taking together with Dictador will be something our children continue. And that they will do so with the same enthusiasm with which we,
their parents, are now initiating the 2 Masters project".
