Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Playful and youthful. Swaps from sweet citrus to a bitter note. Groundspices with a floral edge.
Palate: Clean,carries that floral note through it. Slight woodiness with a little ryespice towards the end.
Finish: Refreshing and soft.
Comment: Considering its age a more mellow drink than you would expect.

Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Young,lively and swaggering.Lots of lemon peel and kumquat bitterness. The rye flour is back along with an almost lavender like perfume. Some linden blossom,cumin seed.
Palate: Very light and surprisingly restrained. Approachable and soft. Little bit ofnutmeg just on the finish.
Finish: Zesty.
Comment: A solid enough performer,but lacks brio.
