Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Plenty coming out of this, aromas of fresh flapjack, honey, spices a little steamed milk. Custard tarts, nutmeg and a lovely cinder toffee notes.
Palate: Well balanced with sweetness coming from golden syrup. Blueberries and fresh cherries, countered by tart, sour notes of apple skin and medlar fruits.
Finish: Swift and short, everything just vanishes leaving nothing.
Comment: Really interesting and would be great to revisit in a few more years to see how wood takes effect.
Taster   Mark Newton
Nose: Burnt toffee, caramel, Turkish Delight, and solventy. Lingers in a heady, honeyed, syrup zone. Cinnamon, creme brûlée. Some dried fruits: sultanas and raisins, mainly.
Palate: Rounded, muscovado sugar falling to blackcurrants, balsamic vinegar. Crab apple jelly. Mead. Armagnac. It’s all a bit contained though.
Finish: Short, oily, with molasses and dried fruits. Flavours drop off a cliff.
Comment: Pleasant flavours feel somehow trapped, somewhat genie-like, within the spirit.
