Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Leather boots and polish. Fields after barley has been harvested, a little farmyard note, hay lofts, horse stalls and creamy goat’s cheese with honey. Old bookshops, cedarwood and bitter Seville marmalade.
Palate: Big. Warming. Hot milk, goat’s cheese and honey. Dunnage warehouses and grape stalks.
Finish: Earthy and rich, very engaging.
Comment: At first this looked like it might have been disappointing, but no… just took a little time to open up and then was huge and flavourful.
Taster   Mark Newton
Nose: Intensely sweet and fresh: apricots, golden syrup, orange jam, with limes. Settles to reveal orchard fruits. Pouring honey with buttermilk. Slightly oaky. Perhaps a bit simple.
Palate: Oily, with plenty of sweetness and spice. Oranges, citrus notes, cloves and ginger. Rich tea biscuits and some lightly toasted notes. Flatter than the nose, despite the ABV.
Finish: Long, oily, and spicy, but the core flavours vanish too quickly.
Comment: Promising nose, but this was a bit of an anticlimax.
