Battle of the Blends Blend B
I was really excited to be asked to join in with the judging of this competition between Dave Broom and Neil Ridley.
More details on this available from here
My thoughts on this blend are that it definitely comes across much like the compass box hedonism, that brown bread and vanilla note is distinctive and I know it's not one of the ones mentioned but it tastes and noses so much like it and it's very light and fresh, lovely gentle and sweet I like this a lot.
Light brown bread, this comes across strongly like compass box hedonism, very light on the nose with vanilla, fresh light syrup, light toast, gentle Bramley apple slices, wood sap and a hint of light cinnamon
Light gentle smoke, touches of aniseed, light syrup and tinned pears, more light toast and Bramley apples, soft and gentle but plenty of fresh flavours
Light, tangy, fresh
