Nose
Blackberry pie crust, dark chocolate, desiccated coconut, marshmallows, crème brûlée filling, fresh vanilla pods and dark honey.
Palate
Very sweet on the first sip, with white chocolate, a touch of tinned peach, artificial cream and a little dash of spice.
Finish
Lingering American oak notes, with a touch of dryness.
Comment
Approaching its twilight years, but still with a definite spring in its step. Very nicely balanced indeed.

Nose
Dried kelp, quite minerally, warming stones, fudge, clotted cream and vanilla wafers. In time biscuits and hot chocolate.
Palate
Quite savoury to start, rye bread buns fresh from the oven, air dried meats and then some stewed fruits.
Finish
Quite long and lush.
Comment
Very dense, packed with layers of flavour.
