Tasting notes
Taster   Mark Newton
Nose: Amazingly perfumed, yet ashy peat, overshadowing intense barley. Masses of vanilla and floral honey. Smoke fades to reveal stewed apples, peaches and old roses. Simple, but beautiful.
Palate: Floral sweetness that, this time, is a shade unbalanced against ashy smoke. Lapsang souchong tea. Lime marmalade and black pepper.
Finish: Medium length, and still a shy, but a lot of woody, peppery heat.
Comment: Its lack of balance just undermines a confident, bold character. (And bravo to character).
Taster   Laura Foster
Nose: Rather shy. Vanilla ice cream, lemon sherbet, wood shavings, and a whiff of charcoal. There’s something lifted and floral to this too.
Palate: Really pleasing creamy texture to this. Vanilla panna cotta crusted in sea salt.
Finish: Dry and very vanilla.
Comment: A vanilla ice cream float in cream soda.
