Tasting notes
Taster   Phoebe Calver
Nose: Freshly whipped cream, elderflower cordial, papaya and mango conditioner, fruit pastille, candle wax, and a hint of nail-polish remover.
Palate: A hint of sweet peaty earth that I didn’t see coming. Syrupy papaya with a little yoghurt and pine cone. Amber and sandalwood candle and heather.
Finish: Medium to long with plenty of that candle wax lingering.
Comment: I’m here for this. There are twists and turns galore, complexity, balance, and the ABV doesn’t rule the roost. Could certainly sit and sip this.
Taster   Christopher Coates
Nose: Bison grass. Cereal-driven aromas of malt storage. Rather vodka-esque; reminds me of Krupnik. Tarragon, icing sugar, pear drop and vanilla.
Palate: Light bodied. Honey and fromage frais. Underripe pear and banana. Delicately chalky and somewhat minerally, like San Pellegrino sparkling water. A subtle tobacco note (not smoky, like drawing on an unlit cig), with a herbal edge.
Finish: Short, with vanilla and pear drop. Delicately drying.
Comment: Will be polarising. A candidate for a whisky Martini.
