Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Slowly this begins to remind me of breakfast again, mid week though. Granola and raisins, cherry youghurt and a touch of menthol. A mixed fruit salad of mango, melon and tinned strawberries.
Palate: That cherry yoghurt notes banging through followed by tinned fruit and syrup. Huge sweetness with a gentle bitter edge of oak to balance it.
Finish: Long and lingering with a touch of dusty spices.
Comment: I cannot advocate a breakfast dram, but if you fancy something on your porridge at night.
Taster   Lyndsey Gray
Nose: A substantial cereal note with crunchy nut cornflakes, toasted sourdough and pinenuts are followed by fruity elements. Apricot skin, dehydrated raspberries and honeydew melon with a dash of cayenne pepper in there.
Palate: Creamy, creamy, creamy. Cereal milk, peach yoghurt and marshmallows followed swiftly by a sugar rush of tablet that does a 360° back into that creaminess on the nose.
Finish: As I said, creamy. A hint of nutmeg.
Comment: When you’re on your second bowl of cereal and not even feeling guilty.
