Tasting notes
Taster   Christopher Coates
Nose: Pan-fried salmon, thyme, dried lemon, and sweetcorn. Delicate oak spice, especially clove. Very subtle violet and lemon.
Palate: Very light. Popcorn with butter, applesauce and pear drop. Werther’s Originals, and a whiff of wood smoke. Some general orchard fruit and a touch of orange juice. A little chantilly cream.
Finish: Medium. On sweet cream.
Comment: Delicate and refreshing. Not especially complex, but really very tasty. Exactly what I want from a solid blend.
Taster   Bethany Whymark
Nose: Big barbeque vibes, like marinated chicken thighs. Paprika, green bell pepper, and olive oil. A touch of digestive biscuit and underripe peach.
Palate: Light. Peach and a little cantaloupe melon. Steamed apple pudding and toffee sauce. Coffee beans, and allspice. A touch of those hot barbeque coals. Digestives dipped in milky coffee.
Finish: Medium, on oaty crackers, fruit chutney, and bitter espresso.
Comment: The exciting and unusual nose morphed into a more familiar, enjoyable palate.
