Tasting notes
Taster   Neil Ridley
Nose: Menthol lozenges, candied lemon peel, demerara sugar andpatisserie cream.
Palate: Very fruity and feisty on the first sip, with blackberry, pink marshmallows alittle liquorice and fresh strawberry.
Finish: Malty and dry, with a distinct wheaty note on the death.
Comment: Solid and drinkable.
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Marzipan, icing sugar and a little distant smoke. Strawberry liqueur sweetness gives way to hot buttered cornbread and barley sugar.
Palate: Needs a little water to open up a bit, but those sweet cornbread and barleysugar notes come shining through. Spices lurk.
Finish: Dries with spices and wood tannins.
Comment: Balanced and well layered, just need a drop of water to help it emerge.
