Rob Allanson 8.2
Nose: Scented candle, fresh cardamom, maple syrup and brioche buns. Gingerbread, ginger snap biscuits, apple pie and caramel sauce. Hints of chilli shrimps and barbecued corn.
Palate: Sweet, sweet and more sweet, brown sugar. Gingerbread, caramel chews, vanilla cream and toffee apples.
Finish: Pure sweetness here, then the apple, ginger and sticky caramel take over. Just keeps going.
Comments: Good integration. Finish keeps giving more and more.
Sam Coyne 8.0
Nose: Curious. Gingerbread and sugar – warm and while very sweet is also refined. Inviting. Sweet, fresh pastries and vanilla custard. Mown lawns.
Palate: Oak spice and toffee apples on the tip of the tongue. Brown sugar, vanilla pastries and chopped almonds. Spice in abundance; cinnamon and cloves. Rummy raisins.
Finish: Really lasts. Very smooth.
Comments: Unlikely to please all, but fun, quirky and more than a little tasty.
