Lovely and complex, with lots of sticky gs, dates and plum sauce, and sweet onion chutney. Burnt toffee, vanilla, molasses balanced by ginger, almonds and apricots.
Palate
Maple syrup, stem ginger, black tea, with raspberry jam and... vanilla. It’s well- executed stuff: cherries, cloves and nutmeg, with a little custard and baked sponge.
Finish
Hugely warming, with ginger, cloves and cinnamon lingering.
Comment
Excellent. Rounded, full of flavour, not too overpowering. Balanced.

Takes a little time to warm up, then cherry bakewell pies, icing, fondant and glace? cherry. Plenty of wood vanilla too. A real perfume note lurks with lavender, lemon peel and bergamot.
Palate
Big, punchy and warming. Baked apple and cinnamon, but with a lovely black pepper tingle. Huge vanillas and thise cherry pie notes.
Finish
Drying at first with lovely spiced butter notes then waves of cinnamon, all spice and cream return.
Comment
A big boned Bourbon, the tingling, numbing spices are impressive. Great fun.
