Tasting notes
Taster   Becky Paskin
Nose: A big strawberry hit, both under-ripe and the jammy kind. There’s bramble fruit in blackcurrants, blackberries and raspberries, tempered by dried ginger, black pepper and toffee cake.
Palate: The berries move straight into the palate but are joined by Jamaican ginger cake and a lovely bready, nutty, mentholic rye spice that elevates it beyond the sweetness.
Finish: Blackberry jam smothered on hot, buttered rye toast.
Comment: So much flavour in one glass, I’m certainly coming back for another.
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Takes its time, slowly opens up to reveal hot buttered corn with a little chilli heat. There’s sweetness with chocolate-coated cherries and pistachio Turkish Delight.
Palate: More corn comes through, almost corn pancakes with chilli jam and black pepper spice. Starts to sweeten with chocolate-coated peanuts and raisins.
Finish: A little spice pucker that fades leaving a jammy sweetness behind.
Comment: A fantastic sip that has some hidden depths behind the shyness.
