Tasting notes
Taster   Bethany Whymark
Nose: Nutty and woody: pecan pie and new oak. Lemon, black pepper, coriander seed, roasted chestnut, toffee apple, and lime curd.
Palate: Medium bodied. Treacle sponge pudding with sugary date chunks and a little crystallised ginger. Oat-milk coffee. Cooked pears in syrup. Hints of nutmeg and clove. Lemon meringue pie.
Finish: Medium, on caramel latte, lemon zest, and a little oaky spicy.
Comment: Very nicely balanced and very sippable.
Taster   Christopher Coates
Nose: Under-ripe peach, avocado, and dried pineapple. Sawn oak, porridge with cream, vanilla custard, and candied orange.
Palate: Medium-light. Intense orange, like eating jaffa cakes with a glass of orange soda. Under that, there’s lemon boiled sweets and some custard cream biscuits.
Finish: Medium-long. It fades slowly to candied lemon peels.
Comment: Clean, fresh, and summery. Nice neat, but I’d like this in a highball.
