Tasting notes
Taster   Phoebe Calver
Nose: Newly mowed grass, combined with the sweetness of a fruit and nut bar. Vanilla pods, stewed apples dusted with brown sugar, wood polish and pencil-rubber shavings.
Palate: Oily mouthfeel, like glace cherry syrup with the warmth of cinnamon. A chocolate pear tart with almond frangipane. A hint of vanilla, some more of that hay and marzipan grittiness, with lingering toasted oak notes.
Finish: Leaves you with a hint of oak and apple peel before it dries up.
Comment: Really enjoyable, but I wish it wasn’t quite so hot.
Taster   Christopher Coates
Nose: A little shy at first, but opens up a bit with time. Cedar wood with cinnamon, allspice, furniture polish, and black treacle. Black cherries, plum wine, blackcurrant cordial, and sweet pipe tobacco.
Palate: Hot and tingly, but mellows out. There’s more cinnamon and toffee, milk chocolate, brioche, camp coffee and blackcurrant wine gums. A little coriander seed and cumin, with more allspice.
Finish: Quite hot, with allspice and dark chocolate there.
Comment: Tasty, but needs a touch of water to tame the heat.
