Tasting notes
Taster   Christopher Coates
Nose: Concentrated demerara. Lotus Biscoff biscuits, spun sugar, cinder toffee chunks with milk chocolate. Freshly varnished oak and hints of pine sap.
Palate: Light bodied and stunningly drinkable despite the ABV, with decadent salted caramel and Biscoff. Caramel coated peanuts and crunchy nut cereal. Fruit character is oxidised and rancio-like, with white port flavours.
Finish: Sweet succulence with a mousse-like fizz of gentle wood spices.
Comment: Delicious caramelised sugars and sophisticated fruit.
Taster   Phoebe Calver
Nose: A deep and rich treat, like a cinnamon-dusted slice of fruit loaf, packed with raisins, orange peel, almonds and a good glug of sherry.
Palate: Things dry out a little here, getting more oaky, with that fiery cinnamon spice, chopped raisins, cherries and more chopped almonds. Just a hint of old armchair, with worn leather seats.
Finish: A lovely lingering finish, leaving you with a spicy sherry tang.
Comment: Lovely and complex – it’s a classic with a twist and would be fun to play with in a Manhattan.
