Chris Goodrum

75
Nose
A huge, uncompromising, very balsamic sherry monster. A touch of citrus and salt adds freshness.
Palate
Exactly the same as the nose. Balsamic, herbal and a little rough at the edges.
Finish
Good length with a touch of tar, cigar smoke and cinnamon.
Comment
Luckily, it hasn't been compromised by sulphur tainted sherry butts.

Joel Harrison

78
Nose
Cherry lips sweets, damson, figs and quince cheese. The alcohol seems higher than the natural ABV, with a spirit note coming through.
Palate
There is a big fruity note on the palate, taking the figs and adding dates to it. A hint of blood orange comes through backed by some fennel.
Finish
A strong note of bitter black tea with lots of brown sugar and some orange bitters.
Comment
Perhaps hasn't quite found its feet just yet.
