Nose
Classic fruit cake, but said cake has been stored in a tin of chocolates, taking on toffee, vanilla fudge, caramel and The Purple One. Plenty of toasted nuts, raspberries and some date syrup too.
Palate
A fabulously chewy texture. This is both earthy and fruity, with forest floor and coffee granules mixing with orange and lemon oils, raspberries and dates. Toffee balances the earthiness.
Finish
Chocolate-covered whole hazelnuts and warming paprika.
Comment
A chocolate tin at Christmas… to be enjoyed all year-round.

Nose
Parkin cake and crumbly cheddar cheese. The richness tempered with a little fig vinegar. Then toffee, tablet and melting brown sugar. Hints of steamed milk and coffee, some citrus.
Palate
Ah that's where the peat is hiding. Not huge peat, more leafy mulch and wood shavings on the fire. An old wooden cabinet to it. Melted chocolate and hot milk.
Finish
Quite short leaving those leafy notes and toasted pine nuts.
Comment
Great stuff, water opens out the citrus and ramps up the chocolate edges.
