Nose
Light, open. Outdoor fragrances: wet earth; a touch of moss and fern. Thyme, rosemary.
Palate
Velvety. Round and soft. Incredibly sweet given the strength. Greengage. Cooked peaches. Cherry stone. A subtle spicy rise.
Finish
Dry, spicy. Fresh almonds.
Comment
An interesting character. Much sweeter on the palate than expected from the nose. Water brings out an unpleasant cardboardy touch.

Nose
Floral notes underpinned by icing sugar sweetness. Some balancing fruit acidity. Lemony with water.
Palate
Creamy at first, develops Crunchy bar, caramel notes. Herbal character with water.
Finish
Medium. Apple skins. Pithy dryness emerges. Develops slowly to a complex finish.
Comment
Opens up beautifully with water, developing sweet, vermouth-like herbal notes. Holds one's attention.
