Tasting notes
Taster   Joel Harrison
Nose: Cherry coke with a big waft of charity shop clothing rail. Old fur coat and some rich toffee sit comfortably together.
Palate: Fiery palate which needs calming with water. Once there, it gives strong flavours of homemade toffee apples, condensed milk and suede jackets.
Finish: A robust finish gives memories of a 1960s Comprehensive School building. Grange Hill’s sixth form common room in a glass.
Comment: Grange Hill in a glass.
Taster   Neil Ridley
Nose: Charred orange peel, caraway seeds, polished copper, white pepper and a little sour cherry.
Palate: Big hitting, with masses of sour cherries, chewing tobacco a hint of vanilla and spirit all punching your teeth in. I’m starting to feel like a cowboy drinking this.
Finish: Moist cheroot, lingering oakiness and a mossy overtone, gives this some real presence.
Comment: Again, as with its predecessor, it tastes very rustic and old fashioned, reminiscent of a few old Bourbons I have been fortunate enough to try.
