Nose
Lots of pink notes of strawberry jam, cherry cola and Tunes. Cinnamon Danish pastries and lapsang souchong tea with a hint of dried lavender.
Palate
Brimstone and scorched earthy heather. Pulled pork with hickory on the barbeque, then redcurrant jelly, pomegranate and cinnamon topped coffee.
Finish
Hot and fiery.
Comment
A huge big bruiser - quite a showstopper!

Nose
Medicinal with a subtle wood smoke and soft brown sugar.
Palate
An explosion in a medicine factory kicks this off. Then we're into some dark spicy wood, charred meat, liquorice, some oily treacle and malt extract. Water helps to separate the more overpowering notes.
Finish
The smoke is very dense and fogs the palate for a long time.
Comment
Yes, this is big and bold, but there is some relative depth to it. Take it to a bonfire on 5th November. You can always use it to help ignite the display, should you find fault.
