Tasting notes
Taster   Phoebe Calver
Nose: Crunchy nut cornflakes up first, becoming more fruity with juicy pears and sandalwood notes.
Palate: Green apple skins jump in, more of that honey crunch, caramel drizzled over poached pear slices and a kick of almond.
Finish: Fresh and lingering, with just a hint of Bakewell tart.
Comment: This develops through the palate and into the finish, delivering the unexpected as it goes.
Taster   Christopher Coates
Nose: Straw, honey cake, vanilla malt shake, and Robinsons Fruit & Barley lemon diluting juice. Subtle jasmine notes.
Palate: Light. Delicately creamy, with lots of vanilla sponge, icing sugar and lemon notes. Some white grape juice, subtle elderflower cordial, and a little caramel. Stewed apples and pears, too.
Finish: Medium. Ends on the orchard fruits, honey and vanilla.
Comment: Fresh and summery. Very easy drinking, but with enough going on to keep it interesting.
