Tasting notes
Taster   Christopher Coates
Nose: Cream soda and limeade, porridge with honey and underripe banana. Cut flower stems and daffodil.
Palate: Very light bodied. Sweet vanilla and creamy – like squirty cream. An intriguing balance of fresh blackberries, fruity chalk sweets, fondant and brioche. A distinctive almond note rises and falls.
Finish: Medium. The almond fades to red apple.
Comment: A very pleasing, simple blend. Takes a while to get going, though.
Taster   Phoebe Calver
Nose: Tarte au citron, with a whole lot of heavy pastry. Lavender honey, then almond biscuits, redcurrant jelly and cinnamon spice.
Palate: Gentle savoury notes, like a rosemary cracker, then icing sugar sweetness, an old pine box and resinous notes. There’s a hint of that redcurrant sweetness and citrus zest.
Finish: Medium finish that brings citrus notes and peppery crackers.
Comment: It took a little while to open up and perhaps was a little on the mellow side when it did, but there was balance and subtlety there for a calm dram.
