Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Buttered popcorn, green apple and raspberry jam. Moves across to polished oak tables. Becomes leathery, tack rooms and candle wax. Apple pies and washing.
Palate: Honey syrup and lemon verbena tea. Citrus appears, blueberry pancakes and the sweetness of syrup waffles, honey-nut cornflakes and warm almond milk. A little waxy at the end.
Finish: Tannins and spices, then long and juicy with fresh citrus.
Comment: A great drop of grain. Intriguing with layers that peel away, who called grain simple.
Taster   Sam Coyne
Nose: Boom! Big oak spice. Vanilla and just a waft of smoke in the background. Hints of apple and a little old-sweetshop.
Palate: A light mouthfeel. Notes of both lemon peel and lime just swim over the tongue.
Finish: A smidgin of spice, before the citrus really makes its presence felt; fresh zesty lemon peel and lime. Long, just keeps going and going. Almost refreshes you – ready for another go.
Comment: Worth a try just for the zing and zip of that citrus finish alone. Mouth-puckering!
