Rob Allanson

Nose
Sweet, rum and raisin ice cream, toasted crumpets with brandy butter and baked rye bread. Juicy fruits with a tang, cherries, lemons and fruit salad, satsuma pith and brown sugar.
Palate
Spicy, with rye bread punching through and develops to fruits. Lush dense fruits, leather and damp tweed. Tinned pineapple and sugar syrup.
Finish
Long and entertaining, alcohol prickle and tannins come through. With water there's a huge orchard note.
Comment
Fun stuff. Water helps releases hidden depths.

Nose
Spices on the nose followed by rum and raisin ice cream. Melon follows and waft of sugar syrup.
Palate
Rich, a really coating mouthfeel. Fruit salad; melons, satsumas and a touch more syrup. There's also a heft of spice that sits right on the tip of your tongue.
Finish
Finish is long with a real tickle of spice. Does move a little into the realm of vanilla.
Comment
Nice and well layered. Nothing overpowers too much and everything is well balanced. Got a little bit of something different going on.
