Tasting notes
Taster   Lyndsey Gray
Nose: Fruity and sweet with pecan pralines, crushed pistachios, marzipan, kiwis and foam bananas. Lemon sherbet, rose oil and pear cider, creating a sparkling finish.
Palate: Lemon sherbet and banana note that dissolves into a dry, nutty flavour note with marzipan, sour cherries, cayenne pepper and a dusting of cinnamon.
Finish: Spicy and dry with a very creamy oat consistency.
Comment: Morning mimosas with banana and cinnamon porridge.
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Wildly fruity and floral. Then so much fruit; strawberries and raspberries, sweetness and a little sour edge. Farmyard too, with fresh hay and goat’s cheese.
Palate: The strawberries and raspberries remain. There’s a whiff of peat in here and a little minerality of hot stones.
Finish: Now the peat starts to grip. Dries with a little wood and the smoke dominates.
Comment: Feels young, but has some wonderful qualities, there is a winey side to it, that makes this interesting to explore.
