Nose
Varnish and polished wood cut with some green elements. Hints of drinking chocolate powder, touches of flour and dry oak. Quite firm.
Palate
Sweet and nutty to begin with with caramelised notes, barley sugar sweets and a bittersweet raw sugar quality in the centre. With water the flow is more pleasant with a gentle spiciness.
Finish
Bitter chocolate.
Comment
Decent enough.

Nose
Grassy. Drying hay. Verbena. In the back, some liquorice (the root). With water comes crème brûlée and milk chocolate too.
Palate
Sweet and round. The oak is present, wrapped in a spicy festoon. Toasted hazelnuts come through.
Finish
Dry, firm, with an astringent twist.
Comment
Shy at first but displaying layers of well integrated oak. Give it time and a dash of water.
