Nose
Musty. A walk in a pinetree forest on a rainy day. Damp walls. Develops into creamy aromas. Vanilla toffee. Hint of polished floor.
Palate
Lusciously sweet with a tender bitter sour bit (sloe). Syrupy. Butterscotch. Turns tickling. Sherbety. Nutmeg and ginger.
Finish
Creamy, spicy, everlasting.
Comment
Quite a character. Water mellows the spicy burn. Would match well with a chicken “à la crème”.

Nose
Fresh and clean with a sweet hay note. There's also oak, light peach and coconut. In time a smokiness emerges. Citric and zesty with water.
Palate
Good intensity with fine grip showing good balance between the char and a mouthcoating, sweet, sensual mid-palate of nougat, cream, tinned fruit and orange blossom honey.
Finish
Light smoke. The sweet citrus notes return.
Comment
This delivers on palate rather than nose. Oak is just a little hard though.
