Tasting notes
Taster   Lyndsey Gray
Nose: Feel like I’ve just snorted all the spices in a mahogany cupboard and just a tiny dose of lemon sherbet. Grapefruit zest, dehydrated clementines, cloves and milky tea.
Palate: Definitely sweet but with strong spice. Toasted chilli flakes, chargrilled sweetcorn and grapefruit segments with cardamom, star anise and a herbal element of green pesto.
Finish: A chalky texture dries out the palate with the spices continuously still swirling around.
Comment: A Bourbon that could easily be confused for a rye. I’m in love.
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: A mix of shoe and table polish. Lacquered wood panels and old violins. Dark forest honey. Well-aged ham, creamy goat’s cheese too. Wax jackets. Then cornbread, honey and vanilla ice cream. Cognac-soaked prunes.
Palate: Huge black tea tannins and Parma violets, black cherry compote with vanilla custard. Apple pie. Pork chops and paprika. Golden syrup.
Finish: Roast chilli spices, smoked sea salt prickle and very mouth-watering.
Comment: Neat, this is pretty awesome, don't over water.
