Nose
Freshly peeled mandarin orange, lychee, passion fruit, and blackcurrant leaf.
Palate
The blackcurrant takes the wheel for a spin across the tongue, with a note of very dark cigar leaf, overripe fig, bittersweet PX sherry and very dry, tannic Rioja.
Finish
Bold oak and the cigar leaf hang around, with a faint puff of cigar smoke.
Comment
Excellent.

Nose
Dried raisins, damp linen, polished oak, beeswax, pork scratchings, lino floor covering, but also bags of fruit salad, some exotic fleshy fruits and vanilla sugar.
Palate
Syrup sweetness hits first, peach juice and then the prickle of apricot skins. Waxy mango skin with a little citrus. But there are some dark, roasted spices building.
Finish
Spiced and big, with a little humidor edge to it.
Comment
A wonderful integrated dram.
