Tasting notes
Taster   Mark Newton
Nose: Vibrant yet stately. Seville orange marmalade, treacle, dried figs and dates. Sweet blackcurrants then raisins, fino sherry, wafts of caramel.
Palate: Viscous and delicious. Port, elderberry and blackcurrant, with praline, walnuts and milk chocolate. Raisins. Turkish delight. Mince pies with maple syrup and Tiramisu.
Finish: Long; dates, raisins and cocoa. Ground almonds, nutmeg and cinnamon.
Comment: Not fully rounded but, by thunder, this is tasty. You’ll need a sweet tooth…
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: A dazzling mix of sweet dark fruits, blackberries, blueberries and redcurrants. Citrus notes, kumquat, lime and orange. A wave of melting sugar and butter.
Palate: Moves towards coffee grinds, latte with frothed milk and chocolate. Hints of floral, a vase of roses and hyacinths. Honeyed sweetness too.
Finish: Just keeps on giving. Packed with fruits and nut laden chocolate.
Comment: Yummy and incredibly moreish.
