Nose
Ripe, fruit cake, sherried with touches of smoke, lime and cocoa powder, black grape pressings, panettone, crystallised fruits, and underlying sweetness.
Palate
eally delivers here. Rich, with immediate smoke, lots of kumquat, bilberry, clove, wild flower honey. Fudge like, the chewy fruit dominates the middle of the tongue.
Finish
The smoke returns before honey eases through.
Comment
HP is on fire at the moment.

Nose
Tangy, rubbery. Burnt tyre, earth, moss. A faint citrus note in the back. Gets biscuit on time.
Palate
Sweet. Velvety mouthfeel. The same rubbery note as on the nose. Develops on mint with a touch of chocolate.
Finish
Not long but quite pleasant. A ginger hint.
Comment
Quite muscular but well structured. For a wintery day.
