Tasting notes
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Lightly maritime aromas of estery apricot and pineapple with hints of honey. A touch of dried fruit appears along with a gentle whiff of smoke as well as an almost sweet grain spirit note.
Palate: Opens with toffee and milky / creamy oak vanillins which dominate, although I can just about sense a sweet grain-like note beneath. Straightforward but pleasantly deep.
Finish: Short and sharp with lingering grain-like notes.
Comment: Another one that has fallen foul of the oak on the palate. That grain spirit-like note seems to indicate that this might be a blend.
Taster   Alwynne Gwilt
Nose: Big menthol hit at first, before vanilla, liquorice and paint. Lemon drops, floor wax and something plastic-tinged follows. Also, a bit of blackcurrant leaves.
Palate: Bizarre, tastes like Sweet Tart candies. Very waxy, plastic note, along with powdered sugar and lavender.
Finish: Quite floral and dusty. Shorter than anticipated.
Comment: Not sure about this one. Perplexing. It is very perfumey and perhaps not entirely balanced.
