Tasting notes
Taster   Phoebe Calver
Nose: An initial note of nail polish remover, quickly muted by vanilla sponge fingers, coconut macaroons with dark chocolate, then fresh peach, maraschino cherry syrup and hints of rubber and ink.
Palate: Sweet and syrupy. That maraschino syrup is back with rich, tart dark berry jam. Clove spice, sweet cinnamon and vanilla cream. Orange peel and raw dough.
Finish: Long and sweet with a kick of that cinnamon spice.
Comment: Very well balanced and an even more enjoyable story when water was added.
Taster   Christopher Coates
Nose: A whiff of acetone at first, but this dissipates rapidly. Then comes brown bread, intense cinnamon, clove and glace cherry. Bark compost, condensed milk and creamed coconut. Iced buns, subtle espresso notes, and a touch of rubber.
Palate: Robust, well balanced and well integrated. Black tea tannins, blackcurrant cordial, tart raspberry jam and a touch of bergamot and clove.
Finish: Long and quite chewy.
Comment: The nose is very complex, but the palate doesn’t quite reach the same heights.
