Taster   Lyndsey Gray
Nose: A Lush bomb of sweet fruitiness and soapy florals. Crisp green apples, marshmallows, freshly baked scones, then bark and pine trees in drizzly rain.
Palate: Like biting into the juiciest Granny Smith apple, sweet and tart with the right amount of waxiness. Vanilla custard, cinnamon toasted oats and freshly sawn pinewood.
Finish: Floral and fruity with a spicy dryness making you go back for more.
Comment: A well-balanced pick ‘n’ mix bag of fun.

Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Leafy and very forest floor like. A little fusty; dusty books and old churches. Cinder toffee, milk chocolate, leather book covers. Orange cough sweets.
Palate: Soft and gentle at first, then an instant build up of spices and tannins. A lovely floral note and sawmill. Feels like there is a smokiness lurking here too.
Finish: Long but with a little spicy sharpness to it. Very floral right at the end.
Comment: Really intresting floral lead dram. I love the way the smoke seems to lurk, and that spice hit is great. Lovely stuff.
