Annabel Meikle

72
Nose
Chalky candy, Edinburgh Rock, rhubarb and custard sweets. A lighter side develops with jasmine tea and lime posset. A briney smoke washes over the nose.
Palate
It has a clean fresh laundry character, green grapes, coconut water and more lime. A hint of saltiness, with ashy smoke and waxy hand cream.
Finish
Gentle and delicate with a short finish.
Comment
A little lacking and thin, perhaps it was too young.

79
Nose
A light smoke, golden syrup, some liquorice sticks, brown butter and a little chopped hazelnut. Pleasant, but fairly subdued.
Palate
The smoke is surprisingly sweet, with a sugar coated liquorice note too, alongside a charred maltiness.
Finish
Short, with a little lingering smoke.
Comment
The mouth feel /sweetness gives the smoke a good foundation here. A solid drinker, but perhaps a little too basic for some.
