Tasting notes
Taster   Mark Newton
Nose: Baked apples in golden syrup. Vanilla custard. An undercurrent of maltiness. (Sounds generic, but it’s lovely). Once the sweetness fades, there’s a strong expression of malted barley, and herbal.
Palate: Apples, toffee, a little malted barley. Grassy, or rather leafy. Green tea and lemon, with a hint of honey. I wouldn’t say that the low ABV opens it up.
Finish: Grassy, with a little creamy vanilla, and a hint of black pepper.
Comment: One for newcomers, I think they tell us these days.
Taster   Laura Foster
Nose: Relatively shy, light and bright. Vanilla ice cream, Eton mess, orchard fruit – especially apples. Lemon peel, pine wood and granola.
Palate: Plenty of creamy vanilla. White marshmallows drizzled with salted caramel sauce, topped with that granola. The initial sweetness turns salty and slightly green and sappy.
Finish: Apple crumble, pine and evaporated milk.
Comment: For fans of American oak.
