Tasting notes
Taster   Joel Harrison
Nose: A big hit of oak, lots and lots of spice and sourdough bread. Some slight burnt toast notes and wood chippings after rainfall. Lots of nutmeg too.
Palate: The drying notes of nutmeg continue on the palate, with an earthy, autumnal note and lots of spices. There is also old leather boots and crusty brown bread.
Finish: Very dry, with more nutmeg and now some cinnamon as well.
Comment: The spices and dryness needed a little more balance.
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Very herbal and raw with an almost marc-like youthful intensity. Hints of decomposing rose petals, oat biscuits and with time some sweetening honey.
Palate: Youthful and herbal with mulched rose petals, dark rye flakes, green wood and hints of treacle and rye spice.
Finish: Intense, mouth-watering and very herbal with a touch of balsamic treacle and lingering marc-like notes.
Comment: Young and entertaining but it could have done with more oak character to round off the edges.
