Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: The alcohol punches first, then passionfruit follows. Vanilla syrup with pink marshmallows coated in milk chocolate. Then to forest notes. With water it gets more floral, masses of roses bushes and potting compost.
Palate: Sweet at first then the fruits. Vanilla, Honey Nut cornflakes, soya milk, cinnamon, pumpkin pie and hints of Asian roast pork.
Finish: Water ramps up the sweetness. Ends with sweet and sour sauce, grilled pineapple.
Comment: Floral and heady, dead-heading roses after the rain.
Taster   Lyndsey Gray
Nose: Chargrilled watermelon, bubblegum slush puppies, burnt wholemeal toast and citrus soaked bonfire ash. Then mellow notes of grapefruit and cream filled eclairs.
Palate: Crispy bacon swiftly followed by a smoky bitterness, then sweet melon. Dried cranberries, grapefruit pith, stewed green tea leaves and tobacco ash covered paracetamol and plasters.
Finish: A meaty texture with hot rubber tyres and ash smoke.
Comment: Drinking slush puppies on bonfire night.
