Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Starts off all sweet and spicy, waves of toffee and vanilla with some cinnamon spice and powdered ginger. Huge oak influence too, fresh sawn staves.
Palate: Those oak and toffee notes keep very much to the front. Red fruits come in, cherries, red apple skins, candied peel, bread and butter pudding with a dollop of vanilla custard.
Finish: Long and rich, really just keeps on giving until it’s taken over by chilli spice and the creamy oak.
Comment: A velvet glove surrounding a velvet fist, sweet spicy and some swagger to it.
Taster   Sam Coyne
Nose: Sweetness of toffee, caramel, Demerara sugar and fudge brownies. A little cinnamon and cloves take the edge off the sweetness.
Palate: More of the same please – good continuation of the nose, but with a little fruity uplift from red berries, the odd satsuma segment or two, drying sherry flavours and hints of oak as well.
Finish: Bundles up the nose and palate together really well. Oak and fire.
Comment: Good fun and some really pleasing touches.
