Tasting notes
Taster   Lyndsey Gray
Nose: Lemon drizzle cake served with pistachio ice cream and over-ripe banana skins. Light and fruity kiwis, crushed red apples and then dark chocolate Turkish Delights.
Palate: Freshly baked sweet banana bread, cereal milk and roasted macadamias with grated nutmeg and gingerbread hot spice on the finish. Basil and almonds begin to appear.
Finish: Super fruity with a spicy, dry consistency creating length.
Comment: When you’ve jammed an entire packet of fruit Polos in your mouth.
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Bags of fresh oak chips, malt extract then floral notes, gorse flowers, dried rose petals and bluebells. Citrus with orange rind and then some blueberry pancakes
Palate: Fruity at first, mango and dried apricots. Vanilla pods and chilli honey, then the oak tannins grip. Tea soaked prunes and coffee grinds.
Finish: Takes its time then dried on liquorice, the pink ones, and Szechuan peppers.
Comment: Woodier than a woodchuck chucker’s pocket.
