Nose
Very bright jammy notes (apricot and raspberry) an underlying note of spicy chocolate ginger and new oak.
Palate
Mint/menthol humbugs, a touch of rubberiness, leading into dry liquorice root, a touch of coffee and butterscotch.
Finish
Sweet candied notes, alongside a touch of chewy cigar richness.
Comment
Despite its appearance in a youthful, trendy overcoat, this has some developing, interesting and complex under garments.

Nose
Bread and butter pudding, chocolate covered toffee, mint toffee, banana skin. Spirity at first, an alcohol prickle, then the oak comes through.
Palate
Big, bold character with plenty of oak grip, chilli spiced crackers, wasabi peas, espresso coffee. Then a maple syrup sweetness and raspberry jam.
Finish
Long and moreish. Very jammy and the moves to a coffee note.
Comment
The alcohol is well mastered, water helps it reach its true potential.
