Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Honeynut cornflakes, chilli and honey roast chicken, a little floral quality. Grilled pineapple and roasted corn with sea salt and mayonnaise. Hot butter laden rye bread. Creamy with a little spice pep.
Palate: A little salt edge, more like the fatty edges of Iberico ham, water really sweetens this out a lot. Roast red peppers and olive oil.
Finish: Warming and mellow, more so with water. A chilli spice hit.
Comment: Almost pure jalapeno juice at first, water brings a more agave sweetness to it. A whisky possibly for a Bloody Mary?
Taster   Sam Coyne
Nose: Sugary milk, somebody's left their Frosties too long. Salted butter and a caramel note.
Palate: Quite savoury, cooked smoked bacon, that's just crisped on the edges. Faintly honeyed, and warm pancakes.
Finish: Short, but with water leaves a little bit more of an impression. Oakier that the palate and nose would suggest.
Comment: Rich and just a hint of sweetness. Mostly savoury, but the odd wave of sweetness does balance it well.
