Nose: Cox apple, lemon zest, toffee, and hazelnut. Cinnamon-dusted French toast. A touch of grassy spice, thyme-infused caramel, corn kernels, and coconut oil. Bitter orange marmalade. Ginger cake and milk chocolate.

Comment: Spirited, complex, delightful.
Nose: Cumin, curry leaf, coriander seed, dried lemon, toffee, and distillery mill room. Snickers bar (milk chocolate, nougat, peanut). Battered chicken. Star anise and clove. Wholemeal waffle.
Palate: Medium-light. The spicy nose belies a somewhat more conventional palate. Bramble jam, apple fritter, and caramelised pears. Nougat with salted pistachio. There’s still savoury meatiness.
Finish: Medium-long, on turmeric and almond cake.
Comment: Someone’s ordered takeaway to the production floor.
