Nose
Melting butter and smoke. A smouldering bonfire. Smoked ham. Complex with notes of date and a touch of wood.
Palate
Interesting interplay between toasted nut, caramel, apple wood smoke. Great length and complexity though it is better neat.
Finish
Sweet oak and long.
Comment
This has balance. Like it.

Arthur Motley

Nose
Sappy tannins, crystallised ginger, and a fruit cake. A lint medical note and some smoke. Water brings up some new sawn oak, a raisiny sweetness and more spice.
Palate
A big, sappy, woody palate with barley sugars, smoke and ginger wine.
Finish
Tannic and smoky.
Comment
Intensely flavoured, but while it shouted very loud I didn't necessarily enjoy everything it had to say.
