Tasting notes
Taster   Mark Newton
Nose: Very much in sweet territory – heather honey, dried raisins and sultanas. Vanilla sponge and golden syrup. Warming ginger with flashes of lemon curd.
Palate: Repeats the nose with its sweetness, and adding muscovado sugar. Baked pears develop, along with digestive biscuits, but then blackberries and raspberry jam.
Finish: Long, sweet, with a creamy, blackberry tartness and Assam tea at the end.
Comment: Tea and jam tarts with the old ladies. Did I mention this was sweet?
Taster   Laura Foster
Nose: A strange dominant metallic quality, like burnt copper. Push past that I get marker pens, nail varnish remover, orange water, seashells.  
Palate: Like a toddler putting everything it sees into its mouth: warming toffee, some peanuts, then a rubber, a couple of marker pens..
Finish: ‘Warming’... that tingling sensation is hanging around.
Comment: Not what I was expecting, perhaps a rogue sample?
