Tasting notes
Taster   Lyndsey Gray
Nose: There is a suggestion of fruit coming through, but it’s more of an imitation. Think foam bananas and Dr Pepper. Victoria sponge, honeycomb, freshly baked cheese scones and custard creams as well.
Palate: A carefree palate of steamed soy milk, scorched grapefruit peel and fresh linen with an edge of almond butter and dried apricots. That soft Maltesers melting in the mouth sensation.
Finish: Chalky texture with an initial hit of sour notes but it softens quickly and ends.
Comment: Fresh, airy and arguably a grower.
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Very reminiscent of opening a bag of fresh coffee beans, sweet with a gentle bitter edge. Then fruit shows up in the form of raspberries and a touch of overripe bananas. Buttered toasted crumpets too.
Palate: Very soft and mellow, no sharp edges here. Gentle oak vanillas and lovely rich Golden Syrup. Fresh chocolate sponge cake with raspberry jam.
Finish: Darkens a little with the sweetnes moving to black treacle and prune juice.
Comment: Intriguing stuff, that balances all the right things.
