Tasting notes
Taster   Neil Ridley
Nose: Acetone/pear drops, into some ripe orchard fruit, a touch of dusty leather, a touch of white pepper and white flowers.
Palate: Some initial creaminess gives way into an oaky note, with a touch of subtle vanilla, some stewed gooseberries and lime peel. A little tart, but fresh together in the same sentence.
Finish: A touch of apple pie and a squirt of fresh lemon juice to boot.
Comment: Youthful in character, but not without its merits, with a particularly pleasing vanilla quality. Be prepared to dig deep to discover it though.
Taster   Annabel Meikle
Nose: Sweet apple skins, then juicy apple and fresh almonds. Lots of baking cupboard aromas - banana extract and vanilla sugar.
Palate: Tinned pears with the juice and white chocolate sauce. Fresh balsa wood and melon balls with honey.
Finish: A creamy, silky texture that softens with a little water.
Comment: A fresh aperitif dram.
