It’s got a whole lot of character and plenty to sink your teeth into... if that is possible with a liquid.

Tasting Notes

Phoebe Calver

Taster

Nose: It’s like a fruit salad with mandarins, strawberries, raspberries and blueberries, all just washed, then vanilla yoghurt and flakes of almond.

Palate: Things get a bit richer on the palate, bringing plum, dates, raisins and syrup. A hint of old book. Chopped walnuts enter the mix and a chilli warmth emerges.

Finish: Remains quite nutty on the finish, with a white pepper heat lingering throughout.

Comment: It’s got a whole lot of character and plenty to sink your teeth into... if that is possible with a liquid.

Score: 7.9

Taster

Nose: Sweet mash, pine needles, resin, black cherry jam, cola cube, and red grape juice. Puff pastry twists with brown sugar.

Palate: Medium. Black treacle, prunes in syrup, date, and dark drinking chocolate. Then comes honeycomb and stewed blackberries, with cinnamon and demerara. In time, subtle peanut.

Finish: Long, on chocolate and nuts.

Comment: Tasty stuff. It will appeal to fans of fortified wine cask-matured drams.
