Tasting Notes

We found ourselves strolling through a late summer orchard, such was the wood and fresh fruit vibe on the nose, although this was complicated by honey and candy sweetness, and coconut-perfumed gorse. Despite the alcohol burn at natural strength, we enjoyed chocolate, cherries, vanilla custard, sweet pickled ginger with wasabi and some charred wood. The reduced nose suggested marshmallows, red liquorice laces and pears in syrup, all laid out in an old wardrobe (the wood slightly mustier now). Water mellowed the palate considerably – cherry cough sweets and other fruity confectionery, coconut ice and a finish of oak, tobacco and bitter chocolate.
