Tasting notes
Taster   Phoebe Calver
Nose: Sticky toffee pudding with shed-loads of sauce. New sanded oak and sweet vanilla fudge. A spoonful of sweet berry jam, grated nutmeg and some spiced orange warmth.
Palate: There’s a little wood smoke in there, and more sticky toffee sweetness which is burned off relatively quickly, leaving the winey toffee penny mouthfeel and a handful of mixed red berry fruit.
Finish: Short, hot and prickly. The smokiness saves it for me.
Comment: Not a great deal of complexity here, but I felt there was some potential on the nose.
Taster   Christopher Coates
Nose: Intense caramel and butterscotch. We’re in sticky toffee pudding territory. There’s scones with clotted cream and raspberry and blackcurrant compote, nutmeg, with some creaminess and a subtle wood smoke.
Palate: A little hot. There’s more of that caramel, with some red apple and a little wood spice. A little water sweetens things further and tames the heat.
Finish: Medium length. Stewed red apple (skin on), caramel and subtle wood smoke lingers.
Comment: It feels like it needs a little bit more time in the warehouse.
