Tasting notes
Taster   Dominic Roskrow
Nose: Early stewed vegetable nose, but with crab apples, damp Autumn leaves and some caramel notes. Finally sweet tangerine peel. A lot going on here.
Palate: Big, rich and sweet, with baked peach in cream, root ginger and bananatoffee notes.
Finish: The fruit stays the course and the finish is full and sweet.
Comment: Really? Have my taste buds gone on holiday a couple of days early? Neverbeen a fan but this is a little darling.

Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Like making an Airfix model: Humbrol enamel paint and glue. There'sstrawberry jam, but also lots of oily wood -almost greasy/dripping. There's a soapy back note. Slightly better with water ... but ..
Palate: Oily and soapy at the same time. A bit of a jumble of flavours. Some vanillawith water but also the soapiness takes charge alongside dried flowers.Distinctly odd.
Finish: Am I blowing bubbles?
Comment: Unbalanced.
