Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Sweet. Cereal, Sugar Puffs, banana, nuts, violet, sesame. Gentle smoke. Delicate and pretty.
Palate: Gentle, light and smooth. Kiln-like with notes of bran along with lychee and apricot. A smoky centre. Precise.
Finish: Nutty. Light smoke.
Comment: A good aperitif. Strangely like a Rockley Still rum.
Taster   Gavin D. Smith
Nose: Sweet, breakfast muesli with fresh fruit and milk. The smoke is so reticent you could miss it.
Palate: The 'breakfast' nose comes through, with a little more banana, and the same shy smoke.
Finish: Elegantly fruity, with a little more smoke at the last.
Comment: Lightweight, but very drinkable.
