Nose
A cacophony of sour dough, sour cherries, banana skins and rye-like herbs, followed by sweet oak, buttery oak, oily oak and winey, perfumed notes. A bit loud.
Palate
A little watery with a faint cardboardy note. Youthful rye and wheat flake notes come through on the middle and surprisingly there is less oak than the nose would suggest. Bananas and sweet perfume.
Finish
Really perfumed with herbal marc-like notes.
Comment
Eaux de Bourbon or CK B #8 Char perhaps?

Nose
A bold nose which speaks more of the forest floor and drying wood than anything else. Middle Earth in a glass; takes me back to my childhood climbing trees in Norway
Palate
Sweetness and more of the damp wood, cherry notes and Black Forest Gateau. In fact, take away the gateau, it is just the Black Forest on the palate: pine sap and dry leaves.
Finish
Sweet and woody. The sweetness is the overriding element.
Comment
A dash of bitters to complete, perhaps. Confounding but enjoyable. Now, how to score?
