Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Grainy, then buttered popcorn. Redcurrants. Floral peonies and sweet red roses. Wood influence here, pencil shavings and fresh planed oak. Toasted wood as well.
Palate: Instantly spicy with hot chilli, then wood tannins. Refresher sweets, red and black fruit pastilles. Some coffee grinds and a meaty edge.
Finish: Sweet with those spices taking control and drying things.
Comment: A liquid form of the Miles Davis’ So What, with the grain as the smooth bass line and the spices taking the horn section.
Taster   Kate Packwood
Nose: Turkish delight and vanilla fudge, then gooseberry syrup, a floral note of peonies, and blue bubblegum. Red cherry leads and fresh hay meadows follow, water brings out celery salt, cola cubes and big cinnamon spice.
Palate: Very fiery for the ABV, but then cherry pie and demerara sugar, honeydew melon and runny honey. The cola cubes and cinnamon continue through.
Finish: Very long and very hot and cinnamon spice lingers.
Comment: Like eating cherry pie on a picnic in a wildflower meadow.
