Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: American ice cream floats, lots of cream and a citrus zest freshness. Honey Nut cornflakes and warm milk. Baker's crust and more sweetness.
Palate: Refreshing and sweet. Chantilly cream, oak shavings, some spices lurk, ginger, cinnamon too.
Finish: Almost vanishes, dries with a zestiness.
Comment: Water helps bring out the malty and sweet side. Certainly an interesting drop.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Tangy. Malty. Cereal bowl. A big wave of vanilla. And more vanilla! Cream soda. Candyfloss. Lemon juice.
Palate: Crisp. Raw silk feel. Sweet and spicy in the same time; light and pleasant flavour delivery. Vanilla, lemonade, ginger ale as well.
Finish: Dry, quickly fading with a slight astringency. Quite clean.
Comment: A soft drink with alcohol? Pleasant and refreshing. A dash of water is necessary to cut the edges though. But it enhances astringency.
