Tasting notes
Taster   Phoebe Calver
Nose: Like the smell of a homemade apple and blackberry crumble fresh out of the oven, with cinnamon in the toasted topping, and a little brown sugar.
Palate: Stewed apples and blackberries, with sticky toffee pudding that has thick toffee sauce and chunks of dates and walnuts.
Finish: Toasted cinnamon spice notes linger here, with the sticky toffee sweetness.
Comment: This is giving me a hankering for all of the autumnal puddings and a cosy evening by the fire.
Taster   Christopher Coates
Nose: Ripe banana and milk chocolate. Somewhat earthy and meaty, with a suggestion of barbeque smoke. Tomato, tamarind and Worcestershire sauce, with cedar and pipe tobacco. Petrichor and wood bark.
Palate: Medium. Cinnamon and cherry, blackberry jam, damson plum, brown sugar and maple syrup. Milk chocolate and toffee.
Finish: Long, sweet and subtly smoky.
Comment: An unusual rye with lots to like. It’s fruity, sweet and savoury.
