Tasting notes
Taster   Becky Paskin
Nose: Liquorice blackcurrants with a hint of menthol too, alongside toasted oak and baking spice.
Palate: hings become richer, with red bramble fruits and black cherries, while wine gums retain that candied quality from the nose. The oak keeps things grounded and adds a touch of spice with nutmeg, vanilla, cinnamon and brown sugar.
Finish: Oaky and dry.
Comment: Forest walks should always be accompanied by a bag of blackcurrant sweeties in my opinion.
8.3
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Grainy and malty at the start, fresh loaf crust, a little warm yeast and then a touch of toasted spices begins to come through.
Palate: Dense and lush, with plenty of body. All-butter shortbread sweetness meets hedgerow fruits, quince jam. There’s ground allspice and egg custard tarts there too.
Finish: The fresh oak spice really starts to grip and slowly dissipates leaving sweetness.
Comment: Plenty going on despite coming in at just 40% ABV. This is nicely put together.
