Nose
Perfumy.Liquorice,white pepper. On time,luscious sweet notes swirl up. Vanilla,pear drop. Quite complex and finely laced.
Palate
Silky.But firm.The palate is not as enticing as the nose. A pleasant fruitiness at start then a bitter oaky flavour.
Finish
Medium,slightly spiced.
Comment
The nose was promising but the palate did not deliver all. Water stresses the bitterness.

Nose
Oil and peat,deep and resinous,dying embers,nutty,lemon detergent.
Palate
Soft and easy at first,then some spice and fruit push through.Grapey.
Finish
A small explosion of flavour,with a long pepper and peat tail.
Comment
The sweetness of the Madeira works quite well with the earthier notes of the malt.
