Tasting notes
Taster   Phoebe Calver
Nose: Burning up the nose at first, before a lovely floral lavender honey note is drizzled all over some light madeira cake. Mandarin orange and old-school waxy lip balm. A savoury note is there too, like pasta and a little plasticine.
Palate: Tutti Frutti sweetness, corn syrup and more of that waxy lip balm. The plasticine note is more apparent. A warmed-up cheese twist appears before some lavender honey, which staves off the heat.
Finish: The waxiness remains with a creamy hint of fennel.
Comment: Complex and interesting.
Taster   Christopher Coates
Nose: Paper straws, clementine and lime juice. Vanilla custard, beeswax and a very subtle Parmesan note, with avocado. Some apple and pear tart too.
Palate: Quite robust. Fondant icing and fruity-flavoured candy, pink grapefruit and a pleasant creaminess. With time, a delicate anise note emerges along with some very gentle tannins.
Finish: The anise builds somewhat and the melon note persists to a long, slightly hot finish.
Comment: A real grower. Seems simple and spiritous at first, but really opens up nicely.
