Nose
Buttery popcorn. A winter fruit compote of baked peaches, stewed apricots, plums and rhubarb. Well worn leather like a tobacco pouch with aniseed and rye emerging.
Palate
Young and fresh (virgin oak?) with wine gums and Turkish delight sweetness. Savoury cereal notes of Shredded Wheat and oaty flapjack. Blackcurrants in the hedgerow with toasted grist.
Finish
Spritzy and then drying.
Comment
Assertive, the spirit isn't being pushed around by the oak.

Nose
Wow – a waft of vanilla ice cream, covered in hot fudge sauce. The sweetness turns into creamy coffee, condensed milk and vanilla essence, as well as fresh toasted oak.
Palate
Quite mouth coating and viscous. The coffee notes lead first, with a return of a slightly bitter vanilla note, some dark chocolate and earthy tobacco. Strangely at odds with the sweet nose.
Finish
Cocoa and dark coffee leave a lengthy lasting impression.
Comment
All sweetness and light on the nose, but with a darker more complex heart. Well played.
