Nose
A glossy kind of nose with lots of mature waxiness, redcurrant jelly, mulberry jam and cob nuts. Then comes fig rolls,cigar boxes and a touch of laurel. Hint of smoke. Complex.
Palate
Rounded with a fascinating interplay between custard, muscovado sugar, and an earthy undertow. This is given a lift by mint and lemon thyme.
Finish
Milk chocolate and dried kumquat.
Comment
Complex and fascinating. Snap it up.

Nose
Big and very bold. Tobacco leaves,over ripe bananas,burnt sugar and a whiff of smoke. Develops over time showing maturity.
Palate
Sweet spicy edge which coats the whole mouth. A subtle citrus note mixed with a real autumnal note (drying leaves,fresh ploughed fields, almost potatoes).
Finish
Juicy,long and restorative.
Comment
Get a bottle of this and the evenings are looking long and luxurious no matter the weather.
