Nose
Ginger and plum pudding dusted with five spice. Fleshy red apples and banana bread with golden sultanas. Water relaxed the grippy rye and opened orange peel and maple syrup.
Palate
Hot, perfumed and polished wood. A curious hint of fermenting beer and rising sourdough bread with cinnamon. Rich oak with gentle glycerine and beeswax.
Finish
Sizzling twig, then waxy, fruity and sweet.
Comment
A slight disconnect between nose and palate but give it time.

Nose
Fresh pine sap, polished oak, burnt coconut and a hint of vanilla, coupled with lashings of caramel sauce.
Palate
Very spirity, with a wash of slightly dry oak, a little caramel and a hint of dried fruit.
Finish
Short with a hint of drying oak.
Comment
Not a great deal to go on here, I'm afraid. It feels rushed and unbalanced.
