Tasting notes
Taster   Phoebe Calver
Nose: Like a grain store on a hot summer’s day, followed by Christmas cake notes, almond flakes, chopped dried fruits and baking spices.
Palate: The grain moves to an artist’s shop, full of pencils, then more of the almond, cinnamon and nutmeg notes. A whole lot of toffee arrives, with blackcurrant and almond flakes.
Finish: Beautiful spices linger on the finish.
Comment: Nicely balanced and I like the way that it develops over time.
Taster   Christopher Coates
Nose: Gingerbread dough, black tea kombucha, manuka honey and subtle notes of used coffee grounds. Tamarind caramel chews and a whiff of smoky bacon crisps.
Palate: Medium bodied. Hot at first, but subsides quickly. Coffee cream chocolates with salted caramel and some prickly ginger zing. Honey on burnt toast, a touch of cola and pistachio.
Finish: Medium. The cola note turns to underripe pear.
Comment: Some solid flavours here, but it’s still a touch too boisterous for me.
