Tasting notes
Taster   Phoebe Calver
Nose: It’s quite heavily perfumed with lemon zest, pink wafers and quince jelly. A little honey sweetness appears before a hit of log burner, chopped walnuts, wood chippings and freshly cut grass.
Palate: The oiliness of machinery with mixed spice. There’s a slight salinity to it before light caramel, peppery spice and seaweed appears. Citrus peel cuts through, with another chug from the log burner.
Finish: Finishes up on the woody side with a hint of almond.
Comment: It certainly has potential and a whole lot of character.
Taster   Christopher Coates
Nose: Slightly floral, with ripe pear, lemon sherbet and rice paper. A touch of lime zest, along with a pleasant but gentle wood smoke, menthol and tomato stem. With time, some workshop aromas emerge: sawdust, Danish oil and a delicate varnish note.
Palate: Eucalyptus, some pear drop, a little more of that lime citrus edge. Somewhat herbal with a touch of brine, like a not-so-dirty, dry vermouth-heavy Martini.
Finish: Very gentle wood smoke, more pear drop and green apple skin.
Comment: Somewhat coastal and some really easy drinking.
