Nose
A slightly funky, sweaty note – mild, but noticeable. Sun ower oil. Pears in syrup. Buttermilk and slightly plastic notes. Cre?me caramel, the vanilla spilling out. Enchanting milk chocolate.
Palate
Viscous and honeyed, but one dimensional. Lingers in orchard fruits, with toffee and custard. Buttery with ground almonds and coconut.
Finish
Too short, but a pleasant oily end with hints of malt and a vegetative note.
Comment
Very approachable, as they say, for newcomers.

Nose
Damp wool, wet forest floor, really earthy. Roasted beetroot with baked salt cod. Toasted marshmallows and chocolate covered hazelnuts. Then black ink and old paper.
Palate
Peach juice, sweet and nutty, Digestive biscuits with melted chocolate and marshmallows. Tropical fruits, salty tinge and a little tannin edge.
Finish
Short, sherbet and a little minerality there. Peat is here, but very gentle.
Comment
Pure Autumn, warming gentle spices and fruity undertones – what is not to like here.
