Laura Foster

80
Nose
Really floral, with honeysuckle, jasmine and roses dominating. Elevenses in a carpenter's workshop – Ceylon tea (he's a posh carpenter, alright?), juicy orange segments, mandarin and chocolate cake, drifts of sawdust.
Palate
Zippy rye sings out clearly yet pleasantly, with hay, chocolate cake mix, orange zest and butter richness. Jasmine and roses on the mid-palate, dissipating into chocolate.
Finish
Dry rye bread and dark chocolate.
Comment
Solid sipped neat, or mixed in a Sazerac.

Nose
Hugely floral with a dusty note to it. Walking into a florists – rose, peony and lilies – with a basket of fruit, citrus (orange and lemon) shine through. Dark rye bread and a linseed oil quality.
Palate
A punch from the rye then smoothed over by dark honey, cherries in chocolate. Rich with those floral notes from the nose.
Finish
The rye dominates leaving dryness and spice.
Comment
A good punchy rye, with decent depth. A slow sipper or a foil for a pickleback. Good stuff.
