Tasting notes
Taster   Lyndsey Gray
Nose: It’s like someone mixed apple crumble in with Playdoh. There’s then waves of freshly cooked doughnuts with Nutella and mint choc-chip ice cream.
Palate: Nutty and rich with toasted walnuts and cinnamon oats to begin with which is slowly followed by poached pears and smoked Applewood. Slight grassy hints of morning dew appear.
Finish: A creamy consistency with charred oak notes creating a subtle smokiness.
Comment: Every possible food group in a glass. What more could you possibly want?!
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Damp dunnage warehouses, cinder toffee, dark chocolate coated raspberries, maple syrup and smoked bacon, melted brown sugar, lemon and honey cough sweets.
Palate: All of that nose and more, sponge finger biscuits soaked in sherry, cherries and marzipan icing. Cinnamon laced cream. Very, very nutty.
Finish: Swift tannins and a good punch of alcohol and sherry.
Comment: It’s pretty much the version of a trifle where your aunt is heavy handed with the sherry. Darn yummy to be honest.
