Nose
Shy at first then opening on autumnal aromas. Wet leaves,a hint of mushroom. Cider apples in the attic. A smoky and damp scent rises up with an earthy note.
Palate
Smooth. Alcohol is well mastered. Peaty. A big smoky flavour wrapping fruit. Then fresh oak wins over fruit.
Finish
Crisp,dry,tickling. A leafy touch.
Comment
The smoky character is more expressive on the palate than on the nose. Goes with the season.

Nose
Starts off with burger relish and chicory coffee,but there is a chemical off note too,particularly with water.
Palate
Peat and root vegetables battling with an unpleasant dirty note.
Finish
Gloopy,vinous, and not nice.
Comment
Reminds me of accident I had once with my chemistry set.
