Nose
Tangy, a little spirity. Floral. Geranium. Quite perfumy. In the back, a note of wet leaves and moss.
Palate
Sweet at start, with a cotton wool feel. Then the alcohol makes a hefty come back but in a pleasant way. Lots of oak.
Finish
Warm, spicy, oaky. A grassy aftertaste.
Comment
A sharp character which needs a good dash of water. Quite refreshing.

Nose
Plain and slightly harsh. Linoleum with a vegetal note. Cinnamon and mashed banana.
Palate
Better on the palate. Smooth yet tingling attack and a Madeira-like nuttiness. Very direct.
Finish
Dry. Slightly aggressive.
Comment
One dimensional and rather simple.
