Taster   Dominic Roskrow
Nose: Lemon drizzle cake mix. Light and zippy,with just a trace of mustiness.
Palate: Very earthy and spicy,with some green fruit trying to get through butbeing squeezed out.
Finish: Sharp and spicy.
Comment: Falls flat in this company. Perhaps it should have been bottled at a higher strength?
