Tasting notes
Taster   Phoebe Calver
Nose: A light chocolate sponge topped with stewed raspberries and fresh cherries. A punchy espresso, with vanilla custard slices. There’s some slightly resinous tree sap, old toasted wood, warm rubber and a hot bitterness.
Palate: A rich nutty oiliness which merges into old garage oil, and chocolate Weetabix with a touch of peppery heat. Rubber soles and sweet cinnamon spice. Dark chocolate grated over a sticky toffee pudding.
Finish: A surprisingly short finish, leaving a little lingering oiliness.
Comment: Pleasant and very sippable.
Taster   Christopher Coates
Nose: Molasses, black treacle, dark chocolate sauce, well-matured ligero cigar tobacco, black cherries in syrup, espresso and a farmyard-like note of silage. A little rubber and struck match too.
Palate: Quite chewy and well integrated. Figs, almonds dipped in dark chocolate, lots of caramel chews, coffee cake, and sticky toffee pudding. Some pleasant raisin and date flavours.
Finish: Surprisingly short, but leaves a little of that caramel note.
Comment: Lots of promise and some solid flavours, but blink and you’ll miss it.
