Nose
Beautifully mature with that lovely aged tropical character – melon, apricot, acacia honey and sawdusty oak. Seriously honeyed with hints of barley, thyme, rosemary and fragrant malt. The sort of nose I could spend all day sniffing!
Palate
Velvety and super smooth. The flavours glide beautifully over the tongue. Mature, honeyed and tropical with malt, barley and subtle oak. Mouth-filling and deep with a superb balance.
Finish
Long and quite citric with a touch of coffeed tannin and herbal after-taste.
Comment
Simply gorgeous!

Nose
Takes some time to open up. Gives black banana when it does, with dates and hints of stone fruits. Vanilla and cloves complete the aromas.
Palate
A very bitter palate which eventually reveals those stone fruits, figs and marmite. There are hints of over extraction and burnt coffee.
Finish
Big spices linger with heavy charred oak.
Comment
Could be better balanced.
