Joel Harrison

75
Nose
Cream soda, white truffle, hops and hot butter toast. A dry nose giving off wet sand.
Palate
Sweet green apple, white flowers, cinnamon, cotton candy and icing sugar.
Finish
A hint of cocoa powder and hazlenut mixed with chopped walnuts.
Comment
Like walking down the baking aisle in a supermarket the week after Great British Bake Off

Annabel Meikle

70
Nose
A gentle controlled nose. Faint cherry and orange with warm oak. Pear becomes more evident with water, and some balsa wood. Brine and salted lemon.
Palate
Well rounded spice, like malt loaf with golden sultana, melted orange iced lolly and hazelnut.
Finish
Soft, smooth and short.
Comment
I wanted a little more to get my teeth into.
