Tasting notes
Taster   Annabel Meikle
Nose: Rosehip syrup, bramble and apple tea, and rhubarb. Exotic wood and has a lovely waxiness like rose flavoured lip balm.
Palate: Paradise cake made with raspberry jam, almonds, cherries and walnuts. Tea soaked fruits, caramel and some savoury notes emerge, like hoisin sauce and soy.
Finish: Soft and melting, takes its time.
Comment: I loved this for the subtle and delicious flavours. Masterly
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Aromas of gentle, waxy orange and treacle-toffee coated dried fruit. Sherry blankets the nose and a slight herbal 'spirit' note comes through. The emphasis is definitely on the cask though.
Palate: A little simple on the palate, again a reasonable degree of treacly dried fruit along with a touch of herbal eaux-de-vie. The oak begins to bitter but the developing oils counter.
Finish: A continuation of the dried fruit theme with a touch of liquorice and treacle becoming apparent. Pleasant, lightly spiced after-taste.
Comment: Canadian? I'd never have guess that under all that oak..
