Nose
Perfumy, grassy. Peaty. Smoked dry hay. Meadowsweet flowers. Nutty. Praline and nougat.
Palate
Oily, velvety. Luscious smooth sweetness. Smoky. Pears in vanilla syrup. Peaches. Rich, creamy. With water, a fresh citrus note (lime).
Finish
Dry and crisp, spicy with a lovely almond aftertaste (blancmange).
Comment
Unusual profile for a... Bn ! Very interesting though. The perfect companion to a cheese and fruit plate.

Nose
Rather vegetal - preparing a Burn's supper: turnip peel and cooking kale. A general freshness behind.
Palate
Much better than the nose. Good soft spread of flavours. Agave syrup, cream soda and ginger with that sulphur just jagging up towards the finish.
Finish
Cereal.
Comment
The nose is off-putting.
