Joel Harrison

80
Nose
Fruit compote, upside down pudding, hot tar.
Palate
Full of flavour, sweet builders' tea, plums, figs and dates. Leather jackets and motorbike oil. With water, vanilla and whipped, sweetened cream.
Finish
Walnuts, dates and some blood orange.
Comment
A velvet tracksuit. Not a three piece suit. Smooth and silky.

Annabel Meikle

60
Nose
Malted toasted biscuit, then fresher lemon and lime, mint. Malted loaf and hints of plum. With water, it falls apart with sulphur and composting vegetal notes that overpower any fruitiness.
Palate
Very astringent, bitter hops, stale beer with a powerful metallic taste. Spent coffee grains, and then solvents emerge with water.
Finish
The bitterness and astringency lingers.
Comment
Feels young and immature with little influence from the wood.
