Nose
Orange pulp some herbal notes and sweet honey,lemon barley and hard toffee. This becomes softer with water with chocolate and some light florals.
Palate
Gentle and soft with light sweet spices, nuts and a honeyed character.
Finish
Mix of nuts and barley sugar.
Comment
Lacks a little depth in the centre, but of interest.

Nose
Barley sugar sweets,toffee,lightly medicinal like an old fashioned chemist. White chocolate.
Palate
Simple,cleansing. Very sweet with bags of honey masking the smoke.
Finish
The sweetness prevails.
Comment
A shade of the one trick pony but very good at what it does.
