Nose
Leathery,slightly charred. Muscular and powerful with a savoury note. Slightly meaty with touch of fireworks. Raisins with a hint of PX. Autumnal.
Palate
Robust,lightly smoky and definitely meaty. Bovril.Intense with huge layering of flavour. Liquorice, shiitake mushroom.
Finish
Deep and long.
Comment
Highly recommended.

Nose
Oaky,sour. Cider cellar. Wet soil. Mushrooms. A hint of chicken broth.
Palate
The same sourness as on the nose. Pretty tough on the tongue. Grippy oak and not much more.
Finish
Dry, tangy.
Comment
One more example of unbalanced oakiness. That sensation of nosing and tasting oak juice is not very exciting.
