Tasting notes
Taster   Becky Paskin
Nose: Sweet, dense and indulgent, like only the best puds: Jamaican ginger cake, sticky toffee pudding and treacle tart with warm caramel sauce.
Palate: More ginger cake, now a richly fruited and spiced sponge with currants, sultanas, dried peel and glacé cherries before nostalgic spotted dick with hot vanilla custard.
Finish: Spicy and long, a finish to savour.
Comment: Well structured, balanced and just delicious. It drinks well at such a high ABV too. One to revisit again and again.
9.4
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Huge and rich, like a bath of black treacle. Stewed prunes, crystallised ginger and cola cubes. The thickest vanilla-laden custard.
Palate: Apples in milk chocolate, sherry-soaked raisins and warm Parkin cake. Hints of roast chillies and toffee coated walnuts. A faint preserved lemon sweet tartness too.
Finish: Comforting and coating. Takes its time to dry leaving gorgeous spices behind.
Comment: What a stunner. Everything seems to be knit together nicely with great depth and balance. 66.2%? Really?
