Nose
Rounded with some rancio - field mushroom. Lightly leathery and supple. Heavily oxidised and slightly feral. Reminiscent of an old manzanilla pasada. Candle wax in a Gothic house.
Palate
Surprising fruitiness comes through, all blue and black fruits then scented woods. Dense but still has energy. Clean, honeyed rich and layered.
Finish
Liquorice.
Comment
A rich and mysterious dram.

Nose
Malty. Farm-like. A cowshed, with a mix of animal scents and straw. Animal feed too (pallets). Grassy. Opening on treacle and fig syrup. Intense
Palate
Crisp. Taffeta like. Treacle and dried fruit but without the sugary flavours. Old cider. Getting spicier. Water enhances some oaky grip.
Finish
Quite long, dry and spicy.
Comment
The nose and palate are very different. Slighty dour on the palate. A firm character though.
