Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Morello cherry and vanilla ice cream, apricot pie, cinnamon and coconut macaroons. Orange liqueur and almond croissants. Moves to floral, apple blossoms and then to fresh oak and black in on paper.
Palate: Oak sweetness then black tea tannins. Fruits start to emerge in the background with cherries, roast apples and oranges. A sort of synthetic sweetness – not in a bad way though.
Finish: Long and lingering chilli heat, with a prickly sherbet edge.
Comment: Fruity and zippy with the alcohol under control.
Taster   Lyndsey Gray
Nose: Herbal tones of peppermint, pinenuts and sautéed red cabbage followed by hot white chocolate, whipped cream and marshmallows with a little honeycomb.
Palate: Straight away it’s like chewing on a fruit 'n' nut bar but soon after there is peach yoghurt, orange marmalade, liquorice and some barbequed sweetcorn.
Finish: A buttery texture concluding with those initial herbal characteristics that appeared on the nose.
Comment: Drinking a morning cup of peppermint tea in a patisserie.
