Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Really grainy, boiled sweetcorn cobs, malt loaf and full fat butter. The sweetness of honey nut cornflakes and almond milk. A tinge of oak aged Chardonnay that moves into unsmoked bacon.
Palate: Alcohol hits home first, which water takes the edge off, opening up the tannins and that grainy note. Barley sugar sweetness. Orange melon flesh and really quite fruity.
Finish: Long and sweet. Sweet and fruity with orange sherbet.
Comment: Packs a serious punch. Once the alcohol is backed a way reveals a stunner.
Taster   Sam Coyne
Nose: There’s a load of cooking going on; baking bread, cheese boards, a smattering of dustiness, a croissant or two. There’s a smoky fattiness as well.
Palate: Hot – toasted oak, but dial it down with some water and there’s a quality of raisins, sultanas and bits of orange peel, balancing sweetness and bitterness.
Finish: Long finish, lighter than the body and nose suggested.
Comment: Taken with water, this is a delicate surprise with light touches, without water it’s also a surprise with hefty punches.
