Rich Madagascan vanilla with lemon barley to start on the nose. On the first sip of spirit, the panel’s composure was tested. There was an immediate welling up of eyes. The sensation was akin to sucking on full strength peppermint sweets. An old mud covered tractor remembered one of the panellists. An unexpected combination of flavours mingled favourably- lapsang souchong tea and chilli chocolate. With water the Panel got recently extinguished camp fires and a heather covered field on a hot summer’s day interspersed with wild garlic. The mouth had us chewing on smoked bacon to start, then were sucking on dusty boiled lemon sweets for our dessert.
