Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Gentle at first, salt laden flowers, sea pinks, buttered samphire and pan-fired scallops and roes. BBQ wood smoked prawns and ham hock. Distant grass fires. Butter with salt crystals. Pomegranate ice cream.
Palate: Sweetness at first, Gala melons and air-dried ham. Cherry jam and grilled nectarines. Forest floor notes, burning bracken and pine needles.
Finish: Prickly and fruity, a lot like a pineapple roasted in woodchips.
Comment: Like eating a hot buttered crumpet and maple syrup next to a campfire on the beach.
8.5
Taster   Lyndsey Gray
Nose: Butterscotch angel delight, raspberry jelly, fresh ginger and crunchy peanut butter. Salt and cider vinegar crisps appear and pine wood shavings appear alongside praline pecans.
Palate: A light sweetness of buttercream, key lime pie, candy floss and cherry sorbet. Sesame oil and peppermint tea enter with a sprinkling of coffee grinds
Finish: A sweet tingling sensation that turns into an oily finish.
Comment: Candyfloss melting in your mouth while smoking a herbal cigarette.
