Nose
That bamboo/hessian alongside wet linen (Mr Darcy emerging from the lake?) then comes exotic fruits,green melon,rhubarb,oils. Supple and long.
Palate
Big and substantial with smoke kicking in around half-way through, then heavy apple juice sweet/sour mix. Chewy and textured.
Finish
Long and elegant.
Comment
Great balance. When Madeira works it really works!

Nose
A dry almost herbal quality. But there is fruit in here too. The smoke has almost gone into hiding.
Palate
Sweet at first then the smoke reveals itself and nails its colours to the mast. Very bold and entertaining.
Finish
A decent length with great complexity.
Comment
If only there was some summer left,this would be the perfect afternoon libation.
