Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Light grassy herbal quality, lemon posset and creme patisserie. Then a spiced edge starts to emerge. A butteryness as well. There is a smoked side coming through, distant peat fires.
Palate: The smoke is more up front here. The herbal edge comes through as well, Cherry flavoured Lockets. Barbequed sweetcorn.
Finish: Big, bold, spicy with an coating elderflower sweetness.
Comment: A great savoury edge to this, a perfect autumnal hip flask filler.
Taster   Neil Ridley
Nose: Burnt orange zest, some very elegant peat smoke and cinnamon infused Cola Cube sweets come through.
Palate: The smoke is very direct, fogging across the whole palate. Alongside sits a menthol note, some white pepper and perhaps a little damp moss/forest floor.
Finish: Dry, lingering apple skin notes, a touch of chilli and a more restrained smoke.
Comment: Bold, spicy and peppery with a dynamic dry smoke. Anyone fancy a Jalfrezi?
