Nose
All sorts of interesting angles here. Mature, leathery, brown apples, dusty bready/yeasty, then a fudgey note mixed with black grape.
Palate
Sweet, then cardamom. Lightly perfumed and some woods then out of nowhere comes a toothpaste like mintiness.
Finish
Minty with some chocolate.
Comment
All was going so well then the finish undoes all the good work. Ultimately unbalanced. Still at least my breath smells minty fresh.

Nose
Mature, fruity with honeyed tones. Beeswax, polished floor. Touch of new saddle. A fragrant herbal note in the back. Red fruit herbal tea. White pepper.
Palate
Round with a palatable oiliness. Honeyed fruit as well as on the nose. No oaky edges. Perfectly smooth.
Finish
Warm, spicy, uplifting.
Comment
A rich, complex character. Seems to have captured a full aromatic palette.
