Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Quite gentle at first. Strawberries, dark chocolate and cracked black pepper, just a touch of aged balsamic. Slabs of toffee and rose petals, peanut brittle. Soft as possible wood notes. Oak chests.
Palate: Sweet and all that honey comes in. Fruit as well with those strawberries, oak gets a grip. Fizzy sherbet. Treacle tart, jammy with plump blackcurrants.
Finish: Long, sweet and honeyed, just a hint of bitter walnut skin to balance it. Ginger prickle eventually.
Comment: Fairly well balanced and straight forward too.
Taster   Lyndsey Gray
Nose: All the stone fruits with a serving of eggs benedict and sweet tomato and pepper salsa developing. Super nutty too with macadamia nuts, salted pistachios and almond butter.
Palate: Bitter, sweet and spicy at once. Packed with grapefruit, lime zest, cranberries and torched rosemary. Hints of milky cups of tea.
Finish: After an initial bitterness yet it slowly turns creamy with oven roasted oranges.
Comment: A traditional Christmas stocking that consists of an orange and every spiced nut in the planet.
