Nose
Smoked, caramelised oranges, cedar wood, a touch of incense and freshly turned earth.
Palate
A little thin on the palate, but leading into some liquorice spice, a raspberry tartness and a touch of citrus lemon.
Finish
Lingering citrus, alongside a clean malt and some cedary/aromatic oak notes.
Comment
Nice balance of aromas and flavours here, with some unusual aromatic notes to boot.

Rob Allanson

Nose
Sugared almonds, Christingle services, patchouli oil, roast duck and orange sauce, cigar boxes and tobacco leaves.
Palate
Not much up front at first then a Pontefract cake note develops, blueberry and raspberry crumble, more dark cooked fruits, cherries and a citrus zip.
Finish
Long with that citrus edge and tobacco note melding together.
Comment
A huge mix of aromas and flavours. Very intriguing.
