Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Cinder toffee,Chantilly cream, vanilla pods.Pretty malty, biscuity but with a lemon citrus tang.
Palate: More autumn leaves notes come through, that humidor tone. Bags of spice wash the palate.
Finish: Quite hot with that spice note lingering.
Comment: Seems a little young but that’s not stopping it.
Taster   Dominic Roskrow
Nose: Creamy caramel and vanilla, Twix bar, some sweet citrus.With water, lemon and honey toddy.
Palate: Much grungier than the nose. Savoury and earthy green salad. Sappy and immature or at least unbalanced. A big hit of spice.
Finish: Medium, hot and peppery.
Comment: Disappointing. Should have been left with the blending stock.
