Tasting notes
Taster   Christopher Coates
Nose: Pottery workshop, eucalyptus and coal smoke. A whiff of pine. Aniseed balls and cedarwood. Maraschino liqueur (cherry, almond, wood bark, earthy) and top notes of pear drop.
Palate: Light-medium. Smoked toffees and sweetened espresso with condensed milk – like a coffee liqueur. Milk chocolate with caramel pieces. Some earthy notes, but now hazelnut and walnut.
Finish: Long, on those sweet coffee liqueur notes.
Comment: Like drinking a log cabin in the woods, which feels appropriate given its origins.
Taster   Phoebe Calver
Nose: Smells like an old-school health food shop, with tropical notes of dried papaya and mango, then come cedarwood, cocoa protein balls, and sherried raisins.
Palate: Quite heavily sherried here, with lots of rich dates and raisins, chocolate-covered stem ginger biscuits, almonds and spicy oak.
Finish: Medium length, like chilli dark chocolate with a nutty hint.
Comment: There is a lot of complexity, but perhaps the balance is a touch off here and there.
