Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Gentle and quite simple at first, aromatic, a little grassy, then vanilla spices and custard cream biscuits. Toffee ice cream.
Palate: Now it really starts to open up, black cherries in dark chocolate, prawns and chilli jam. Cracked black pepper spice tingles, orange candied peel and chocolate orange.
Finish: Really aromatic, exotic spices and dries with those orange oil elements too.
Comment: Wow, serious aromatic elements here, a full-on spice drawer of a whiskey.
Taster   Becky Paskin
Nose: Shy though sweetly perfumed, it opens up with water into stewed apples, raisins and fresh butter.
Palate: What starts out as simple caramel popcorn moves into fragrant Turkish delight, cherry blossom, lemongrass and red chilli. Water releases more sweetness in milk chocolate and some toffee pennies.
Finish: Brown butter and cardamom hangs on.
Comment: With its remarkably fragrant character, this would make an excellent accompaniment to a masala or bhuna.
