Nose
Some floral notes, charred wood, alongside wafts of coconut husks, cocoa powder and flat cola. A big sherry influence.
Palate
More cola notes, cinnamon, a touch of roasted root vegetable. With water, Manuka honey, some apricot and blackcurrant jam.
Finish
Woody spices.
Comment
The wood has given this a distinct dryness, but water really helps to unlock its true potential.

Nose
Initially lilac floral hints but then develops. Drinking chocolate, macaroons, woodland fruits, gentle vanilla and shaved oak.
Palate
Similar to opening the oven door when making the Sunday roast. Sweet batter notes and a touch of beef stock. Woodland fruits as well.
Finish
Meaty, spicy and pretty long.
Comment
Needs a drop of water to open it up.
