Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Fresh leather, boot polish then sweet runny honey with a biscuty base. Toast and whole honeycomb, a rhubarb and vanilla custard note. Gentle smoke, like smoked haddock served a couple of tables over.
Palate: Gorgeous sweetness, then toffee apples. Stewed peaches and vanilla pods. That gentle smoked edge.
Finish: Clean and the alcohol doesn’t hit too much. Water teases the smoke out. Toasted hazelnuts.
Comment: Certainly works on several levels and that smoke note is gorgeous. Brilliant.
Taster   Sam Coyne
Nose: Caramelised apples, with brown sugar and cinnamon. An apple pie where the edges have caught in the oven. Served up with honey and vanilla custard on top.
Palate: Oak spice up front, but as it fades out some delicate fruits come through. Vanilla and charcoal. Water brings the fruit forward and apricot comes to the fore.
Finish: Worth a drop or two of water to really make this one stand out. Otherwise, long with wooded spices.
Comment: Water goes a long way, while the nose is excellent.
