Tasting notes
Taster   Neil Ridley
Nose: Fresh pine sap, polished oak, burnt coconut and a hint of vanilla, coupled with lashings of caramel sauce.
Palate: Very spirity, with a wash of slightly dry oak, a little caramel and a hint of dried fruit.
Finish: Short with a hint of drying oak.
Comment: Not a great deal to go on here, I'm afraid. It feels rushed and unbalanced.
Taster   Annabel Meikle
Nose: Ginger and plum pudding dusted with five spice. Fleshy red apples and banana bread with golden sultanas. Water relaxed the grippy rye and opened orange peel and maple syrup.
Palate: Hot, perfumed and polished wood. A curious hint of fermenting beer and rising sourdough bread with cinnamon. Rich oak with gentle glycerine and beeswax.
Finish: Sizzling twig, then waxy, fruity and sweet.
Comment: A slight disconnect between nose and palate but give it time.
