Tasting notes
Taster   Lyndsey Gray
Nose: Toasted rye bread with lime jelly and smoked almonds all bundled up in a lettuce wrap. Sweet, fruity and beautifully floral with some notes of lavender, aloe vera and lastly strawberry laces.
Palate: Floral on the palate with lavender infused earl grey tea, peppermint and honeysuckle. A warming spice follows with toffee creams, fresh ginger and chewed tobacco.
Finish: Soft and luscious with sparkling ginger.
Comment: In a nutshell, a little bit of everything.
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Tea soaked prunes, a little hint of tobacco and some gentle smoke. Fatty bacon cooking downstairs. Honeycomb and milk chocolate. Then an earthiness with leather bindings, leaf mulch and damp wool.
Palate: Nutty at first, paper bags full of chocolate coated hazelnuts and candied almonds. Warm, fresh sourdough bread with slivers of mango.
Finish: Long and fruity, slowly dries leaving walnut skins.
Comment: That nutty side of this is wonderfully engaging.
