Nose
Mint toffee.
Palate
Butterscotch sauce. Oat cookies with raisins. Ginger snaps.
Finish
Long, warming.
Comment
Delicious. Perilously drinkable. Drink it with dessert. No, pour it all over the ice-cream.

Dave Broom

77
Nose
Very viscous. A big, quite robust, and, in time, toasty nose filled with cooked fruits, nutmeg, chestnut with a lift of mustard leaves and ginger.
Palate
Thick and quite exotic to start with hints of wild herbs. Slightly lacking in definition.
Finish
Nutty with some peach stone. Some smoke.
Comment
Best with only a splash of water.
