Nose
Intense, fragrant. Dried rose, a touch of lavender. An oily note, close to fish oil. Quite unusual. Then some fresh almonds. Opening on fruit. Pear drop. Touch of lemon.
Palate
Dry and crisp. Some oak grip. Cooked apples. A touch of liquorice. Drying with a little spice.
Finish
Dry, spicy (ginger), astringent.
Comment
The nose is floral to start with then shifting to that fish oil note which disappears at times. The palate is completely different, certainly wood driven.

Nose
Freshly turned earth, Humbugs, some mossy/leafiness cinnamon and clove spiced mulled wine, liquorice, Brazil nuts and dark chocolate.
Palate
Wow, very, very sweet at first, with a lighter malty note developing, some hints of acacia honey and fresh cream. Not at all expected, given the dark character of the nose.
Finish
Some more robust oak and spice returns to the finish, but you're still left with a lighter creamy sweetness in tow.
Comment
A surprising contrast at work.
