Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Soft sweetcorn bread and honey notes. Toasted marshmallows and a little strawberry and black pepper. Hot chocolate and nutmeg.
Palate: All that sugar sweetness is right up front. Tablet, rum and raisin fudge, caramel ice cream, it just keeps on going. Glacé cherries and apricot pieces from granola, a little hint of dried goji berries too.
Finish: Massive sugar rush then it slowly dries into salted caramel and toffee-laden wafers.
Comment: A serious example of blending. Layers hit you one by one, each adding to the one before. Fantastic.
Taster   Lyndsey Gray
Nose: One fruity number with waves of baked apples and strawberry Calpol. Pineapple cubes bringing extra sweetness alongside crystalised ginger pieces and menthol gum.
Palate: The sweet ginger spice and herbal notes follow through. Hints of apple and cinnamon crumble, blueberry ice cream and burnt coconut appear amongst the spice.
Finish: A long finish with the spices carrying on. A malty texture joins in.
Comment: Well balanced yet still allowing flavours to have their own solo moments to shine throughout.
