Nose
Intense, alcoholic and woody with gritty oak, cinnamon and nutmeg. Oily corn, dark spicy rye, herbal rye, wheat, marzipan, liquorice, treacle, dark chocolate and earth. Water gives balance.
Palate
Tight, alcoholic and woody with orange accented molasses, treacle, herbal rye, bitter chocolate spices and a touch of marzipan and oily corn. Water emphasises the corn.
Finish
Both mouth and eye watering! Very herbal with a marc-like note suggesting youth.
Comment
This has alcohol, complexity and character in abundance.

Nose
Rich treacle, saltiness, coconut ice and honey, sugary sweetness underneath. Opens up with water, dark Belgian chocolate, fruit cake, varnished wood, and mint.
Palate
Warm and spiced from the start. Notes of dry sherry and wood develop into slightly bitter, herbal notes, before settling into a lasting flavour of liquorice root and cocoa.
Finish
Dry cocoa powder, not unpleasant. Cherry liqueur and raisin, like in chocolate truffles; unripe banana, rhubarb and custard sweets.
Comment
Although dry, reminded me of a whole array of sweets.
