Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: A little soapy at first, laundry fresh out of the machine, then these wonderful floral notes develop. Melted marshmallow and ginger nut biscuits. Becomes malty with fresh orange zest, cherry juice.
Palate: Follows the nose with citrus and those malty notes. Then a little meat edge, pastrami on fresh rye bread. Turns more nutty as time goes on, chocolate hazelnuts and a hint of smoke.
Finish: Short, sweet with bags of malt and lime. Water lengthens this.
Comment: Alcoholic strength is not shown when neat, water helps draw out more layers.
Taster   Sam Coyne
Nose: Very gentle, but gradually opens up with a hint of malt. Quite floral, with the hint of open fields.
Palate: Maltiness continues from the nose. There's a little citrus, while freshly ground, nutty coffee comes through at the last.
Finish: Short, but sweeter than you might expect from the palate. Citrus fruits remain, although turns to lime zest. Worth a drop of water.
Comment: Needed just a drop or two of water for me, otherwise doesn't really make itself known.
