Tasting notes
Taster   Phoebe Calver
Nose: A freshly baked loaf of brioche bread with milk chocolate. Tangy whole dates, with lots of red fruits bringing some rich jammy notes. A hint of ginger spice, too.
Palate: The baked goods become more like fruit cake, with chopped cherries, candied peel, raisins and orange peel. There’s some clotted cream and stem ginger in there, too.
Finish: A malty hint before the ginger dries it all out.
Comment: This is a bit of a treat and the perfect winter warmer, bringing those rich and complementary notes over and over.
Taster   Christopher Coates
Nose: Liquorice stick, unlit pipe tobacco, raisins, cola cube candy and black cherry. Blackcurrant wine gums, dark roasted coffee beans, cinder toffee and some subtle black bean sauce.
Palate: Light bodied. Well-integrated flavours of damson plum jam, blackberry, milk chocolate, and unlit cigar. Subtle peanut.
Finish: Medium. Fruit and nut chocolate bar, then rice paper.
Comment: Well-rounded, with little of the heat one expects from the ABV. Has big flavours and presents them well.
