Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Apples dipped in honey. Fresh turned soil, warm and sweet. Stacks of seasoning hard wood. Vanilla essence. A little Playdoh, printer’s ink.
Palate: The buttery sweetness of potted brown shrimp. Clove and white pepper spices. Then the sweetness comes in, fizzy sherbet and liquorice sticks.
Finish: That fizzy sherbet keeps on going mixed with the sweetness of Conference pears. Dries with a little liquorice.
Comment: Like working in the garden in late summer, stopping for a cold beer with the sun warming the soil. Restful and soulful.
Taster   Lyndsey Gray
Nose: Rich tones of sandalwood, sultanas and melted candle wax with ripe banana skin. Sugar-coated watermelon, kiwi flesh and dark chocolate Turkish Delight.
Palate: Beautifully floral with rose, aloe vera and fresh wood shavings creating warmth. Toasted chilli flakes, sweet peppers and a dash of Sriracha.
Finish: Pretty abrupt finish with the flavour dissipating quickly but with the hot waxy texture drying out the palate.
Comment: A massive bouquet of florals and waxy goodness.
