Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Gentle, a little smoke, then ripe bananas, actually more banana foam sweets, peach slices. Sharpie pens then it becomes malty, gentle smoke.
Palate: Again gentle up front, some sweetness, fruit polos and then the malt comes through again, big and bold. This is followed by some citrus notes, oranges and a little grapefruit.
Finish: Short and sweet, nothing wrong with that. Then after a little while those malt notes return with vanilla.
Comment: A good solid blend, nice balance overall and a stunning nose to it.
Taster   Sam Coyne
Nose: Fruity. Evolves from bright green apples to confectionary. Smoke wraps it all up, with a slight vegetative edge. That's quite special.
Palate: Gentle, faint gummy sweets with a little lime zest in the middle. There's a mealy note right at the end.
Finish: Short, with that mealy note now in full control.
Comment: Worth the entry fee for that nose alone, but doesn't quite deliver on that incredible promise.
