Nose
Phenolic. Creosote. Smoky. Obviously coastly. Not much behind the smoke. A distant touch of vanilla maybe.
Palate
Sweet. Malty. Cereal bowl. Gets drier and smokier.
Finish
Smoky,dry,sooty
Comment
Judging by the colour (pale chardonnay),has obviously not gained from the cask. Has got all the phenolic spectrum but not much more,especially on the nose.

Nose
Extra virgin olive oil,with underlying tar and embers,then honey and vanilla.
Palate
Toastyness overlain by a wave of creamy vanilla,honey and malty notes,with underlying dryness,then chocolate eclair,lemon tart and lemon zest emerge.
Finish
Oakey smokeyness,lemon tart,then oak dryness.
Comment
Lemon notes add variety and illuminate the accompanying characteristics.
