Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: A fresh coffee, oat milk, then moves into more fruity territory with orange flesh. Tobacco notes. Then white peony floral notes, green tea, scented with jasmine.
Palate: Rich sweet notes, orange flavoured lozenges, baked custard tarts. Then drinking chocolate with marshmallows, hazelnut whips. In time damp moss and dark fruits.
Finish: Pretty rich and lush with orange flavoured chocolate meeting the spice of wasabi nuts.
Comment: Looks light in colour, but there is a darker side lurking here too.

Taster   Sam Coyne
Nose: Gently inviting – red berries and Christmas cake. Sweetened popcorn waits in the shadows.
Palate: Oak prickles straight off the bat, but it's followed by a sugary vanilla and more of the red berries. Water just lengthens out the sweetness.
Finish: Short, just faint hits of those berries. Felt a little turned down, although it's pleasing enough with some water added.
Comment: Feels a little dialled down after the promise of the nose, however is not offensive, pleasant enough and still easy-drinking.
