Nose
Intense. Deep and complex. First, an intricate array of autumnal aromas. Bracken, wet earth, touch of moss.
Palate
Crisp, tight, sharp. With a rough texture like sanding paper. Sooty, very dry. The same aromatic mix as on the nose. Soothing on soft spices.
Finish
Dry. Soot also more sweetness.
Comment
The perfect image of the countryside in autumn on a wet chilly morning, with a mixture of fog and smoke hovering over the fields and the woods. Very suggestive.

Nose
A big intense slow burning experience. Bonfires in the distance, but also like a fire in a wet forest.
Palate
Sweet burnt sugar with coal tar running through it. A butter and ash combination.
Finish
Sweetness then smoke.
Comment
This needs to be savoured outside or next to the fire.
