Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Takes its time, then intense incense, distant patchouli oil and dried sage. Muscovado sugar, black tea tannins and plums in sherry. Roast ham and dark marmalade. A touch of iodine and mushroom.
Palate: Silky caramel, then plums in sherry. Balsamic vinegar, ginger cake and crumpets with plenty of marmalade. Bitterness of Seville oranges that are coated in dark chocolate.
Finish: Spiced prawns, salted and peppered, then sherry takes over.
Comment: Packed with flavour that hits you bit by bit. Glorious stuff.
Taster   Lyndsey Gray
Nose: Floral fragrance with apple blossom, lavender, aloe vera and freshly cut grass. Oily with salted butter. Buckwheat pancakes, roasted peanuts and lemon sherbet.
Palate: A rush of sea salt and notes of cashew butter and baked pastries follow. Chocolate brioche, toasted almonds and iced eclairs. Salted pork, gooseberries and the addition of spearmint.
Finish: Salty and buttery. Smooths over with just a drop of water.
Comment: Like eating a pile of butteries totally smothered in zesty lemon curd.
