Tasting notes
Taster   Lyndsey Gray
Nose: Toasting marshmallows on the campfire with pine needles burning. Juicy Fruit chewing gum, peaches in honey and tomato chutney. Dehydrated mandarins.
Palate: Soft, luscious toasted rye bread, banana milk, coconut shavings and digestive biscuits. Snickers bar cheesecake served up alongside baked brie, smoked applewood and rosemary crackers.
Finish: A soft, sweet fruitiness with a subtle tobacco smoke.
Comment: Stuffing all the fruity marshmallows and a cheeseboard in your mouth in one go.
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Digging peat on the moors, that earthy, fresh soil aroma tinged with cotton and damp wood. Blood oranges dipped in lush dark chocolate, topped with roasted chilli flakes.
Palate: Just-ripe Victoria plums, poached pears and peaches in syrup. That savoury edge is here too with almost herb-roasted chicken and salted new potatoes. A touch of pipe tobacco and aged leaves.
Finish: Gentle and full of those cigar notes mixed with soft fruit.
Comment: Smoking and drinking in a humidor with a peach.
