Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: A box of vinyl records, acetone and nail polish, cardboard in a old sweet musty way. Toasted marshmallows and glacé cherries, then the oak grips a little. Distant rye bread toast and butter.
Palate: Acetone at first then the gentle oak takes over, popcorn and marshmallow note come through, sweetness with a burnt edge. Rye bread spice pep is just lurking in the background.
Finish: Short, if a little thin – expecting more spices to hit at the end, but it just fades out.
Comment: Not bad at all, just wanted more pep and spice.
Taster   Sam Coyne
Nose: Opens nice and floral, underpinned with rich glacé cherries. The odd subtle hit of vanilla makes its presence felt.
Palate: A big dollop of cherry flavoured yogurt, very rich and lushious. Kirsch. Not immediately spicy, but a lingering heat around the edges. Late caramel.
Finish: Short, with more of the cherries.
Comment: Doesn't quite fire up as expected, but a nice little sweet treat of something different.
