Nose
Figs.
Palate
Like eating a fresh fig. Seedy. Sweet. Crystalised fruits, sprayed with sugar. Fig Newtons. Biscuity. Floury. Dusty. Falls away.
Finish
Stingingly warming.
Comment
Promises more than it delivers. Try it with sweet Turkish coffee or espresso.

Nose
Fragrant. Icing sugar, freesia, lemon, wood shavings (becoming like balsa wood), light vanilla. Hint of plasticene behind. Becomes drier, but still with cut flower stems, jasmine.
Palate
Very sweet. Gooseberry, green apple, just ripe melon. An interesting mix of fragrant flowers, light spice and firm oakiness. Holds well in glass.
Finish
Slightly grippy.
Comment
Fragrant and fine. A Caperdonich? I'm amazed.
