Nose
A box of vinyl records, acetone and nail polish, cardboard in a old sweet musty way. Toasted marshmallows and glace? cherries, then the oak grips a little. Distant rye bread toast and butter.
Palate
Acetone at first then the gentle oak takes over, popcorn and marshmallow note come through, sweetness with a burnt edge. Rye bread spice pep is just lurking in the background.
Finish
Short, if a little thin – expecting more spices to hit at the end, but it just fades out.
Comment
Not bad at all, just wanted more pep and spice.

Nose
Opens nice and floral, underpinned with rich glace? cherries. The odd subtle hit of vanilla makes its presence felt.
Palate
A big dollop of cherry flavoured yogurt, very rich and lushious. Kirsch. Not immediately spicy, but a lingering heat around the edges. Late caramel.
Finish
Short, with more of the cherries.
Comment
Doesn't quite fire up as expected, but a nice little sweet treat of something different.
