Tasting notes
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Treacle, then boiled sweets and soft herbal marc notes. Hoppy with the herbal notes increasing in intensity, rather rye-like in character. Late hints of oily marzipan.
Palate: Youthful but soft herbal marc, boiled sweets, wheat flakes and chunky rye-like notes. A lovely mixture of fragrant, perfumed and lightly bitter herbal notes.
Finish: Long and funnily enough herbal! Cardamom, green wood and tannins.
Comment: Definitely left of centre. It has more than a passing resemblance to the Corsair Rasputin. For the record I love it!
Taster   Neil Ridley
Nose: Initially, very cheesy. Given a little time in the glass, some chamois leather notes come through with some lavender, some wet wood and some bittersweet earthy notes.
Palate: Really unusual. Chocolate malt, some perfumed notes and an underlying burnt toast note. Hard to place where this might be from.
Finish: Lingering chocolate malt and floral notes, with a hint of orange zest.
Comment: Some unusual flavours going on here. Just not my cup of tea, I’m afraid.
