Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Bread-like notes, reminiscent of fresh cut barley. Breakfast muesli. Great layers of vanilla and Maltesers.
Palate: Waves of ground spices and melted chocolate; in fact chocolate covered cornflakes. Some dried fruits.
Finish: Long and leaves a malty aftertaste.
Comment: A little shy at first but this is well worth the wait.
Taster   Gavin D. Smith
Nose: Mashy, cereal notes, plant leaves and vanilla. Plain chocolate and raisins.
Palate: Lots of fresh spices and a carry-over of dark chocolate from the nose. Malty and oily.
Finish: Relatively long and spicy, with chocolate notes becoming fruitier.
Comment: Starts off nosing younger than its years, but grows into itself with time.
