Nose
Aromatic with good American oak notes. Hot gorse, drying lilac, scented grasses and frangipan. Mango, pineapple. Complex, elegant.
Palate
Supple and silky. Mouthfilling. Peaches and yoghurt, orange blossom, light acacia honey mixed with nutmeg.
Finish
Chocolate. Sensual. Amazing length.
Comment
Needs time to grow in the glass. A dream.

Nose
A sensuous dessert-like experience. Amaretto biscuits and apricot jam. Trifle with good custard and raspberry soaked sponge. High bourbon impact. Orange flavoured Turkish Delight.
Palate
The fruitiness doesn't follow to the palate, but an attractive dram with orange and grippy oak.
Finish
Dry leafiness.
Comment
A vibrant and enticing nose. Really good stuff though.
