Nose
Red cola and maraschino cherries, then cupcakes with strawberry and cinnamon icing. Water opens up herbal notes of coriander and mint. A clean, wet slate and strawberry soda.
Palate
White chocolate flavoured with strawberry. Sweet with toffee and fondant. Concentrated apple juice and cherry syrup.
Finish
Sweet, unctuous and coating.
Comment
Deliciously sweet, bagfuls of pudding.

Nose
Dense and lumpen slabs of molasses, abetted by dark treacle, walnuts, orange ring and dried grape. Becomes very spicy – cinnamon and black pepper with a touch of warm vanilla. Now it starts to show some elegance!
Palate
Dense and very mouth-filling but elegant with molasses coated dried fruit and an almost agricole-esque herbal note developing.
Finish
Long and powerful finish with the dried fruit and treacle lingering along with the earthy notes. Lovely, light herbal fade.
Comment
Dark Horse huh? A very apt name.
