Tasting notes
Taster   Arthur Motley
Nose: Green apples, fresh paint and fruit syrup. Kiwis and brown bread. A little eucalyptus oil and mint choc chip later on.
Palate: Sweet, malty, earthy then dry. Maturity and complexity.
Finish: Chocolate with citric sourness.
Comment: Typically lowland, with a nice progression of sensation: sweet, malty then zingy.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Intense. Cooked vegetable (cauliflower), yeasty start then opens into rose petal, Turkish delight, green apple/old apple. Grassy and shows some complexity. Lightly charred.
Palate: Very light, perfumed. Lacy texture. Sweet to start then comes a fresh stewed green plum flavour and red liquorice.
Finish: Vanilla essence.
Comment: Well balanced, though not quite the extra dimension of the very best on show.
