Nose
Intense, a bit spirity. Oak prevails. Cedar wood. Cranberries. Sultanas. Opens on baking aromas. Red plum tart. Buttery and earthy as well. Unusual. In time lots of vanilla syrup.
Palate
Crisp but the alcohol is well mastered. Sweet dark fruit. Cooked damson plums. Dark chocolate with dried fruit.
Finish
Slightly fizzy. Fades away on an astringent note like walnut skin.
Comment
On the oaky side but lots of fruit as well. The alcohol is well controlled.

Nose
Candy floss and sugar sweets then someone opens the humidor door and it's all cedar wood and drying tobacco. Autumn leaves. Melting butter and honey flapjacks.
Palate
Honey cornflakes with a hint of Brazil nuts, rapeseed oil. Then the spices build, fig pudding.
Finish
Long and warming with a little blackcurrant syrup.
Comment
Unravel is the word; take a little time to work through the layers of flavour. Great stuff.
