Tasting notes
Taster   Joel Harrison
Nose: At first there is a real spice note which gives way to black cherry, star anise and patchouli oil. Bold as brass, very inviting.
Palate: Much sweeter in the palate than the aromas from the nose suggest, this is very sippable indeed; blood orange, cereal and liquorice finish off the flavours.
Finish: Smooth, rounded with a hint of spice and chopped red chilli.
Comment: Very drinkable, but very spicy.
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Crisp and citric. Dry, woody rye with herbal notes. The oak is relegated to a supporting role and a touch of cold tea leaves, gooseberry, cabbage and green wood shavings appear.
Palate: Quite spirit driven with a little more oak. A lot more conventional than the nose would lead you to believe with crisp, herbal rye and developing bitter spice, treacle and caramel corn.
Finish: Very dry and oozing bitter spice, but there’s just enough vanilla oak to stop your lips puckering up!
Comment: An absolutely fascinating nose.
