Issue 61
Taster   Arthur Motley
Nose: Jelly babies, ripe banana and pineapple and a persistent and brooding woodsmoke. Strawberry jam, sweet mint and creamy vanilla.
Palate: Creamy and viscous with a lovely meld of sweet and smoky flavours. Smoked almonds and woodsmoke, more of those jelly babies.
Finish: Jam and smoke. Relatively short.
Comment: Delicious combination of intense sweetness with moreish smoke.

Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Impressive, manages to be light, creamy, oily and smoky at the same time. Ice cream on a seaweed strewn beach, macadamia nut.
Palate: Smoke to start, then immediately sweetens into fat ripe fruits. A peppery attack then smooths and softens.
Finish: A bit cloying which disturbs the balance.
Comment: Worth a try but not the most subtle or refined of the range.
