Nose
Honey and jasmine green tea, a gentle acetone, think opening 35mm file cases. Poached pears with chocolate and rosewater. Oak with honey and raisin flapjacks. Tannin grip.
Palate
The apple pie experience, butter pastry, whipped cream, cinnamon spice and then a tart green apple. Butterscotch angel delight and tangerine juice. Beef dripping on seeded bread.
Finish
Long and delicately spiced with almond pastry.
Comment
Really fun with layers emerging. Such a great finish too.

Nose
Subtle honeyed pears, and even a few pear drops too for an acetone touch.
Palate
Not so decorous, a wad of spices; oak and cinnamon up front and then hangs around the edges. Apple and a little herbal note comes through subtly and a bit of mintiness too. Water calms a little of the woodiness and offers a touch of caramel.
Finish
Finds a toffee flourish, which proves lasting.
Comment
If you like it woody this is one for you. Some enjoyable layers but not overly exciting.
