Tasting notes
Taster   Lyndsey Gray
Nose: Lemon meringue pie and cherry bakewell tarts with a hint of liquorice cutting through the sweetness. Followed by KP dry roasted peanuts, salted butter and pine resin.
Palate: Lemon curd, baked figs and chocolate brioche. Strawberries in jelly and a sour bitterness of liquorice, burnt wood shavings, and grapefruit.
Finish: Buttery texture from the chocolate brioche notes that pairs well with the sweet and bitter fruits that carries the length of the finish.
Comment: Dry, spicy, fruity, bitter and sour. A taste sensation.
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Starts off with fresh baking but then quickly moves into peanut butter, sea salt and sour dough bread. Marzipan and glacé cherries. A little citrus syrup note.
Palate: There's a smokiness here, charred oak but then moves into Pontefract cakes and raisin fruit toast with Nutella spread. Hints of baked goat's cheese.
Finish: Holds that raisin fruit toast for a while before drying on cinnamon and a little liquorice root.
Comment: This really takes you on a journey from the seashore to a chocolatier's house.
