Tasting notes
Taster   Phoebe Calver
Nose: Warming and resinous; fresh hay that melts into a mechanical oily note before cereal sweetness, cherries and dried fruit notes.
Palate: The sweetness from the nose continues, but becomes overrun with a spicy hit of cumin. There’s a little engine oil that’s almost buttery, and maraschino cherry syrup sweetness peeking through. There’s a slightly green floral note.
Finish: Relatively short, leaving that liquorice note and leafy veg.
Comment: Some nice complexity here, as well as a few surprises along the way.
Taster   Christopher Coates
Nose: Hayloft, cumin, tarragon, sawdust, beeswax, lily pollen, and sweet cereal notes that remind me of wheated Bourbons. A sappy, violin rosin aroma.
Palate: Cereal sweetness follows from the nose, joined by fennel and anise character, with clove spice. Green apple skin comes next, joined by vanilla ice cream, a vegetal note and a subtle metallic edge.
Finish: More green apple skin and vanilla ice cream.
Comment: A wonderfully complex nose, and lots of potential, but not hitting the spot for me.
