Not as bad as me, but better late than never:G&M Coleburn 29yo 81-10 43%, refill sherry
Nose: Rice pudding and fennel soaked in white wine. Candlewax, cream and milk chocolate. Tangerines and apricots offset by mustiness and sour bung cloth. Great complexity, although it's not subtle and jumps around a lot.
Taste: Fruity and winey with a pleasant delivery before the woodspice roars in. There's a lovely moment when the wine and oak are balanced before the oak overwhelms it.
Finish: It's all about the oak here. Pencils and cigar boxes, woody bitterness and dry spices.
Comments: The cask has taken over, but the nose is great fun.
