Tasting notes
Taster   Lyndsey Gray
Nose: Meringues and cinnamon dusted dehydrated pineapples followed by pickled raspberries, mahogany, lavender soap and a new pair of Dr. Martens.
Palate: A mixture of peaches, raspberries and apricots in syrup with sweet liquorice creating a leathery texture. Strikingly herbal with pine trees, lightly torched rosemary and hot ginger water.
Finish: Hot ginger carries straight through to the end with a light, oily finish.
Comment: Well hello whirlwind! Constantly twisting from light and juicy to rich and spicy.
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Really light and aromatic honey, delicate flowers in brown paper. Rolls of Sellotape. Honey roast chilli. The alcohol prickle grows.
Palate: Very mellow at first, lovely and honey laden. Fresh orange juice, lemon mousse, Frangipane – soft peaches and vanilla. Then slowly spices grow with smoky tobacco.
Finish: Punchy and spicy, eventually dried on cracked black pepper and chilli seeds.
Comment: Full of soft spices, like eating Frangipane in a meadow, sweet and heady.
