Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Opening the door to a florist shop. Sappy, springwood notes, bluebells and daffodils. Then takes a turn into furniture polish, old leather and oriental spices. Some tar notes. Lavender honey. Chilli crab paste.
Palate: Kirsch-filled chocolates, rose water and salted nuts. Black pepper cashews and blackcurrant jelly. Toffee apples, toast and marmalade.
Finish: Spirity at first then tropical fruits and a hit of spices.
Comment: A bitter sweet symphony, great balance.
Taster   Lyndsey Gray
Nose: Loaded with mint choc chip ice cream, cocoa dusted rum truffles and salted pistachios. Clementine segments, grape soda and a bouquet of roses.
Palate: Luscious notes of crushed red grapes, skimmed milk, apple juice and finishes off with hints of Turkish Delight, butterscotch angel delight and freshly washed linen.
Finish: An earthy and floral note carries through alongside a chalky Braeburn red apple texture.
Comment: Can’t decide between fruit or cake? Have both with a glass of almond milk.
