Nose
Quite closed, but with time the reward is brandy butter and blackcurrant bush.
Palate
Ghee, chicken korma, hot butter crumpet and smoke.
Finish
Earth and hot butter.
Comment
Nice and rich, but (like us all) it could be richer.

Nose
Floral, delicate. Freesia, bluebells. Elderflower. Rich fruit. Apricot with custard. Rosemary.
Palate
Very smooth and mouth coating. Nearly velvety. Malty. Green apple, touch of Szechuan pepper. It is more the skin of a Granny Smith and even the pip. Incredibly smooth. The alcohol is completely tamed. A fresh aniseed flavour in the back.
Finish
Not very long but clean.
Comment
A pleasant cordial, fresh and well balanced. Water kills it.
