From Jasper Hill:
"Through our grading exercises, we have identified four distinct profiles that Clothbound tends to express itself within: Umami & Roasted, Yolky & Bright, Chicken & Pineapple, or Brown Butter & Toast. Statistical analysis following batch by batch sensory evaluation will assign one of these four profiles based on similarity of defining attributes."
