Nose
Thick rubber bands, water-based glue and brown envelopes–a stationer's dream come true. A little fruity note tries in vain to get noticed, but the rubber bands ping it back.
Palate
Very rubbery and dry on the palate, with a hint of clove.
Finish
The rubber note lingers alongside a hint of spicy apple pie.
Comment
Unfortunately, very one-dimensional.

78
Nose
Quite leafy, sugar packets, warm bread, tablet, almonds and Danish pastries.
Palate
Quite herbal with that leaf mulch note coming through. Gives way to toffee sweetness with a little hazelnut.
Finish
Spices make for a mouth watering finish.
Comment
Works through various levels of flavour at different stages of savouring.
