Tasting notes
Taster   Joel Harrison
Nose: A light nose which at first has hints of used fish and chip wrapper, but thankfully develops into grapefruit and old fashioned lemonade.
Palate: Creamy, with not a lot to offer other than it sits well and behaves itself. Some banans foam penny sweets and a hint of vanilla sherbet.
Finish: Juicy fruit chewing gum and pink candyfloss combine together.
Comment: Stick with juicy fruit notes and this is a good drink.
Taster   Neil Ridley
Nose: Rhubarb rumble, fresh lemon juice, a touch of sugar paper and brown envelopes and sliced under ripe cooking apples.
Palate: Very summery, with ripe plums, greengages and orange zest. A little thin, but the zestiness makes up for any shortcomings.
Finish: Creamy, with some fresh fruit salad and a little seasoned oak comes through.
Comment: Lightweight, but not ineffectual. A very good Indian Summer dram.
