Tasting notes
Taster   Lyndsey Gray
Nose: Packed to the brim with sandalwood, hessian, strawberry bon bons and liquorice allsorts. Then cardamom, toasted chilli flakes, clove and dehydrated orange.
Palate: This is an explosion of spices. Dark chilli chocolate, nectar honey, cayenne pepper and lingering fresh wood shavings.
Finish: An explosion of flavour that slowly dries out the palate with a hint of ember smoke.
Comment: Snuggled up by the fire at christmas with a glass of PX sherry and a chocolate orange.
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Spices, honey and cherry fruit notes first. Then strawberry laces, honey syrup, crystallised ginger, candied lime and orange peel. A hint of pepper spice.
Palate: The honey syrup and spiced notes coat the mouth, then all spice and cinnamon. Oak slowly takes its grip on the palate, tannins are slow burning but worth the wait.
Finish: Keeps on going, leaving sweet tingling spices behind.
Comment: Spices and sweetness all the way with this one.
