Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: A great warm gingerbread and butter note at first. Then moves in to white sugar cubes with plenty of vanilla fudge. A little herbal edge to this as well, liquorice and Basset's All Sorts sweets.
Palate: A full on sweetness starts to come through, stewed pears, sweet picked beetroot. Then it seems a sherry or wine element grips dark chocolate and plum pudding...
Finish: Back to that gingerbread spicines, then dries on tannins.
Comment: Well worth a look, certainly a dram for brooding over in the winter evenings .
Taster   Lyndsey Gray
Nose: Teeming with floral notes of honeysuckle, geranium and Scotch pine with just a swipe of peppermint chocolates.
Palate: A whack of sweetness bursts through the palate followed quickly by sour plums, ginger and hot liquorice. Sandalwood.
Finish: A hot, sweet spice lingers which also dries the palate for a lengthy finish.
Comment: Not what I was expecting on the palate with some of that gorgeous floral notes becoming slightly sour. An interesting range of flavours and textures with each sip though.
