Tasting notes
Taster   Neil Ridley
Nose: A light smoke, golden syrup, some liquorice sticks, brown butter and a little chopped hazelnut. Pleasant, but fairly subdued.
Palate: The smoke is surprisingly sweet, with a sugar coated liquorice note too, alongside a charred maltiness.
Finish: Short, with a little lingering smoke.
Comment: The mouth feel /sweetness gives the smoke a good foundation here. A solid drinker, but perhaps a little too basic for some.
7.9
Taster   Annabel Meikle
Nose: Chalky candy, Edinburgh Rock, rhubarb and custard sweets. A lighter side develops with jasmine tea and lime posset. A briney smoke washes over the nose.
Palate: It has a clean fresh laundry character, green grapes, coconut water and more lime. A hint of saltiness, with ashy smoke and waxy hand cream.
Finish: Gentle and delicate with a short finish.
Comment: A little lacking and thin, perhaps it was too young.
