Nose
Plenty of sweet and herbal sherry with a touch of luscious, lightly baked plum, prune, malt and walnuts. A touch of buttery vanilla lies beneath and the aromas become a little manurey and quite nutty with time.
Palate
Soft and silky, if a little bland with sweet dried fruit, liquorice and treacle. Robust and clunky with building coffeed tannins.
Finish
Good spicy, mouth-watering finish with lingering herbal notes along with a touch of smoke and minerals.
Comment
It really comes alive on the finish as those spices kick in.

Nose
Rich, toasted orange-infused sponge cake, some complex malt and a wonderfully integrated delicate waft of vanilla oak. Superb and inviting.
Palate
Drier than one expected, but hugely complex. The zest is there, coconut and orange creams, creamy fudge and that underlying old oak polished with a touch of linseed oil.
Finish
Long and inviting, with some subtle citrus fruit notes.
Comment
What a superb starting point. Complex, fruit notes and laden with fudge sweetness, with a restrained dryness.
