Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Tropical fruit hits at first, those travel sweets that people of a certain age would keep in the glove compartment, cherry and powdered sugar. Lemon oil, cake batter. Then moves a touch darker with malt loaf.
Palate: Sweet liquorice and roast almond skins. Thick plum jam and grilled pineapple slices. The tickle of sweet chilli jam and a little heat.
Finish: Those hard candy sweets grip and then vanish.
Comment: This has serious promise if nurtured properly. Clean and fruity with a great deal of vigour.
Taster   Lyndsey Gray
Nose: Hello sweetness. Brandy butter-filled meringues drizzled with macerated raspberries, chargrilled lemons and cherry kirsch syrup. Alpine trees, cold porridge and white chocolate raisins.
Palate: Smooth and creamy. Herbal notes of dried sage and baby corn appear, almond butter, overripe banana skin and dried apricots.
Finish: A buttery nuttiness dries out with sage and coriander.
Comment: Serve me up a Chartreuse Sour. Sweet, creamy and herbal with a hint of citrus fruit. A decent starting point.
