Nose
Peppery rye bread, sweet vanilla, an array of spices including cinnamon studded apple and anise.
Palate
The rye note continues onto the palate, with a vanilla sweetness, some creamy cereal and more of the anise.
Finish
Once the spices and rye notes die away, the palate is left surprisingly fresh, with some lingering orchard fruit.
Comment
Pleasant, spicy and very drinkable indeed.

Nose
Vibrant toffee and caramel notes, desiccated coconut. Cherry Bakewell tarts. Plenty of oak, vanilla cream slice, choux pastry.
Palate
Lush and bold. There is a growing rye pep to this. Also vanilla custard, creamy oak lactones. Sweet to the core, apples in custard, lemon posset, a good coffee liqueur cake.
Finish
Just keeps going, leaving behind a spice layer.
Comment
This is pretty moreish. The sweet edge tempered by a coffee bitterness.
