Nose
Raspberries, vanilla and almonds.
Palate
Quite full-bodied; old leather, dried fruits and cinnamon.
Finish
Steadily drying, with anise.
Comment
Interesting contrast between nose and palate.

Nose
Marzipan and jam tarts. There is a nuttiness to this, cake mixture and a hint of cream.
Palate
Much bigger than the nose, plenty of dried fruits, marmalade, apple pie with cinnamon and custard.
Finish
Gentle drying oak and a little spice.
Comment
All in balance here, a great aperitif.
