Nose
Classic, dusty, very mature, grippy but soft sherrywood tannins with Armagnac-esque prune, plum, raisin, sweet red grape, orange and walnut. French coffee, dusty violets and incense. Moist and juicy with a light coastal note. Subtle smoke, spices.
Palate
Mature, dried plum, prune, raisin in dark chocolate and soft sherrywood tannins. Violet potpourri, incense and oodles of dusty sherry spices.
Finish
Great length with the lightly salted dried fruit and sweet, violet incense and dusty peat lingering.
Comment
I'm lost for words!

Nose
What a surprise! Briny, leather, currants, reminding me of being by the sea. Definitely oily and waxy with deep malty notes.
Palate
A delicacy, sweet barley, biscuits, freshly buttered toast, a bit of almond moving into orange and cacao nibs without ever forgetting the presence of this fine brine and faint smoke.
Finish
Oily and full bodied, crisp and oaky iodine.
Comment
Enjoyable, from the first whiff to the last sip. One I could sip endlessly by a fire.
