Tasting notes
Taster   Christopher Coates
Nose: Vanilla ice cream, pink wafer biscuit, and stewed fruits (apples, pears, blackberry, cherry). Some orange oils and a little banana.
Palate: Light bodied. Red apple, orange juice with honey, and subtle note of peanut butter on rice cake. Delicate lemon sherbet on Dip Dab lolly.
Finish: Short, with an ephemeral note of peanut, fading to red apple skin.
Comment: Pleasing all round and well balanced, but simple in its flavours.
Taster   Phoebe Calver
Nose: Foam bananas, papaya chunks, custard cream biscuits, and gorse bush. Then there’s herbal sage notes and, interestingly, an ‘old penny’ note.
Palate: Slightly butyric: Wensleydale cheese. Redcurrants, then more of the sage, sandalwood, peppery heat, and a metallic note.
Finish: Fades, leaving peppery heat and herbal sage notes.
Comment: Where the nose really captured my imagination, the palate didn’t quite develop the richness I’d hoped for.
