Nose
Autumnal.Charred wood,bonfire and hands plunged deep into moist leaf mould. Thick and toffeed,bold with a smoky edge Opens up to mulberry and,with water,a hint of cordite.
Palate
Seems old,deep and quite resinous. Dried fruits,walnut,furniture polish. A slow,elegant and natural quality to it Big tannins,but sweetness to balance.
Finish
Light smoke then a burst of strawberry.
Comment
Elegant and complex. Highly recommended.

Nose
Woody at start. Wet boards. A fungal note. Then opening on sweeter aromas. Caramelised apple.
Palate
Sweet and round .A bit flat at mid palate. Then a burst of exotic fruit and peppercorn. Passionfruit.
Finish
Drying on oak and spices.
Comment
The palate has more to deliver than the nose. But oak prevails too much.
