Taster   Neil Ridley
Nose: Rose petals, dried Pot Pourri, some dry cider, golden syrup, a little stewed fruit and floral hand soap.
Palate: Quite youthful, but vibrant. Lemon zest, fresh peaches and cream, light vanilla tones and rich tea biscuits all round out a delicate palate.
Finish: Short, with a resonance of the peaches and cream, with a little of the apple/cider note lingering further in.
Comment: As we reach the end of the summer, drams like this become less appealing, so here's to the last few weeks of outdoor weather to enjoy this one.

Taster   Annabel Meikle
Nose: Baked Seville orange and summer ripe strawberries with honey drizzle. Morello cherries and a delicate splash of violet gomme syrup. Water brought out softer floral notes and orange bath bomb.
Palate: A rich earthiness and chewy caramel toffee. Freshly peeled mandarin skins and almond nut from the tree. Softly warming honey and orange hot toddy.
Finish: Sticky and mouth filling, then soothing.
Comment: A gentle personality and a crowd pleaser.
