Tasting notes
Taster   Arthur Motley
Nose: Warm and enticing, honey and Kalhua. Sweet, toasted oats and golden syrup. Mint chocolate, some orange and peach. Some ginger and cloves too.
Palate: Soft and honeyed. Sweet maltiness and brown toast, a little grass and fruit.
Finish: A little toasty oak.
Comment: Structured and classy, an anytime drinking. Inclusive and populist without being dull.
8.8
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Light, grassy and floral with subtle perfumed mixed spice. In time there's vanilla sugar, tangerine, lemon, a whiff of dry stuff, some old apple and with water an exotic note like hoisin sauce.
Palate: A direct, sweet start smooth middle then a gear shift, spices come through with sweet citrus.
Finish: Sweetness and spice. Tingling, then dry.
Comment: Perky, smooth yet firm and spicy. Clever stuff and hugely drinkable.
