Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Cornbread, Honey Nut cornflakes. Trail mix – dried coconut, apple slices and exotic fruits like guava and papaya. Mint chocolate KitKats, menthol note, smashed fresh mint. Becomes perfumy in time.
Palate: Crunchy cereal, ryebread crust, then the fruits arrive, cherries in brandy. Roast apples and brown sugar.
Finish: Punchy and swift – leaves behind chilli laden butter and a saline edge.
Comment: The nose is just like when you walk past someone in the street wearing an intense perfume or aftershave.
Taster   Lyndsey Gray
Nose: Takes a while to get past the acetone notes, then notes of coconut oil, blood orange and maraschino cherries develop into caramel wafers and chargrilled broccoli.
Palate: Waves of ginger and cumin spices, with orange cream chocolates, honey roasted root veg, white pepper and flat cherry cola.
Finish: Short, but full of spice to begin with that quickly dissipates into an oily texture.
Comment: Not as full bodied as expected for a rye but still has some interesting qualities.
