Nose
Opens with toasty oak, vanilla and natural caramel, followed by sun dried grape, sultana and hints of red berries. A herbal graininess adds freshness and with time hints of spice appear.
Palate
Soft, butter toffee oak with grainy dried fruit and winey red fruit. Bitter spices but the graininess adds balance.
Finish
Good length. Intense and vibrant. A little austere with grain and red fruits.
Comment
A vatted grain? It certainly exhibits youth and maturity and possibly wine finished. Either way it's very enjoyable.

Nose
Rich honey drizzled liberally over hot waffles and topped with melting Nutella and whipped cream. What's not to like?
Palate
Toasted almonds and a hint of Frangelico in this, which gives an usually nutty note. It needs a drizzle of water to tame it and bring out the vanillas.
Finish
More nutty notes, some strawberry juice and cracked black pepper.
Comment
Have they managed to mature in a hazelnut wood cask? Nuts!
