Tasting notes
Taster   Chris Goodrum
Nose: Intense, alcoholic and woody with gritty oak, cinnamon and nutmeg. Oily corn, dark spicy rye, herbal rye, wheat, marzipan, liquorice, treacle, dark chocolate and earth. Water gives balance.
Palate: Tight, alcoholic and woody with orange accented molasses, treacle, herbal rye, bitter chocolate spices and a touch of marzipan and oily corn. Water emphasises the corn.
Finish: Both mouth and eye watering! Very herbal with a marc-like note suggesting youth.
Comment: This has alcohol, complexity and character in abundance.
Taster   Sara Smith
Nose: Rich treacle, saltiness, coconut ice and honey, sugary sweetness underneath. Opens up with water, dark Belgian chocolate, fruit cake, varnished wood, and mint.
Palate: Warm and spiced from the start. Notes of dry sherry and wood develop into slightly bitter, herbal notes, before settling into a lasting flavour of liquorice root and cocoa.
Finish: Dry cocoa powder, not unpleasant. Cherry liqueur and raisin, like in chocolate truffles; unripe banana, rhubarb and custard sweets.
Comment: Although dry, reminded me of a whole array of sweets.
