Nose
Ham and green apples with a minerally quality. Plums, lemon rind and exhaust pipes. With water a little thyme, meadow flowers and phenols.
Palate
Sweet then sour and a little bitter. Gooseberries and raspberries.
Finish
Light bitterness and American oak tannins.
Comment
I couldn't decide if this lacked a little, or was just subtle. Pleasing enough, aging with prettiness, but didn't do enough for me.

Nose
Rather dumb nose. Green rhubarb, ripe apple, turned earth, cream toffee. With water there's soft white fruit, green apple, pear drops.
Palate
High alcohol with a light caramelised quality. Ripe pear and apple. Cocoa powder. Crisps up, with a firm. Cognac-like grip. Perfumed with a silky feel.
Finish
Very light, clean, hint of mint.
Comment
Good, but a tad reserved.
