Nose
Malty. Cereal. Toasted bread. Very farmlike. Hay loft. Wet dog. Some floral notes coming through like after a gentle rain in a garden. Dried fruit. Raisins and apricot. Dried apples.
Palate
Thick, rich. An explosion of exotic fruit. Passion fruit, guava. Dark chocolate.
Finish
Drying on oak. A bitter edge.
Comment
Oak is not as prevailing on the nose as on the palate. An exotic profile. Reminds me of Irish whiskey. Interesting richness. Avoid water.

Nose
Tart fruitiness balanced with Rye-like notes. Dusty, grainy, cereals.
Palate
Full and sweet. Peppery. Aniseed top notes. Vaguely smoky?
Finish
Hot. Fennel. Imps. Bertie Bassett's hat. More manageable with water.
Comment
Like kissing your lover after they've finished off an entire family pack of Liquorice Allsorts.
