Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Big malt notes to start with, reminiscent of freshly cut barley fields, malt extract. Then sweetens with honeycomb and treacle toffee. There are some great spices kicking about; with cumin, dried thyme and fennel.
Palate: Orange barley sugar water, that sweetness and a little spice starts to build. Zesty citrus notes and hard candy sweets. A little chocolate.
Finish: All about the spice, with cinnamon and long pepper.
Comment: A decent all rounder with plenty of balance and swagger.
Taster   Lyndsey Gray
Nose: Hard to get past the earthy notes of damp grass, manure, oil paints and linseed oil. Over ripe bananas, marzipan and butterscotch fudge start to peek through.
Palate: Wet bark, blood orange pith and muddy boots. Cherry leather, Battenberg cake and pistachio shells appear after the bitterness.
Finish: Chalky texture that allows a bitterness to coat the palate.
Comment: Like swallowing paracetamol tablets with a glass of orange juice.
