Nose
Butterscotch, a touch of paraffin then a distinct note of strawberry chewy sweet, swiftly into a bag of fresh cherries. Then to a more waxy territory.
Palate
The wax continues onto the palate, with a wonderful oily mouthfeel, some lighter floral notes (rose) and a touch of hot buttered toast.
Finish
Lingering dryness, some salted butter and a hint of hazelnut shell.
Comment
Introduce this to the palate and it will hang around till after dinner but won't outstay its welcome.

Nose
A salt bite, Maldon sea salt that is, damp hedgerows and wet soil. In time tablet, sea salt, caramel, vanilla ice cream, raspberry sauce, tinned mandarin juice, sherbet dips.
Palate
Orange and lime marmalade, sweet, fresh pepper grinds, starts to warm up at the end. Marshmallows, poached pears, a little waxy note. That focused sugar sweetness comes through.
Finish
Shortish and quite warm. Juicy at first then the salt returns.
Comment
The alcohol is well mastered.
