Tasting notes
Taster   Lyndsey Gray
Nose: Rich notes of waxed mahogany, old leather books, sultanas and a dash of passionfruit. Undertones of sweet flora aromas of strawberry laces, parma violets and candyfloss.
Palate: Juicy red berries, coffee cake and white pepper along with the sharpness of key lime pie and stewed rhubarb. A thick creamy texture of condensed milk and crème brûlée.
Finish: A whirlwind finish, with complex flavours bursting through eventually.
Comment: Eating afternoon tea in a dusty old library.
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Fresh, fruity and floral. Tinned fruit salad in honey. Then the floral elements come through, sea pinks, lilacs and roses. A hint of chocolate salted caramel bars.
Palate: Poached pears in cider, grilled pineapples with honey and fresh puff pastry cases. A little darker with blackberries and cherry compote. There is just a hint of peat smoke here too.
Finish: Dries out nicely with roasted barley and milk-soaked Weetabix.
Comment: Well put together, reminiscent of old school puddings, but an awful lot better.
