Nose
Intense sherry. Rich dried fruit. Dates, figs,prunes. The alcohol is slightly prickly. Coffee toffee. Melted oak. Old furniture. Cigar box. Eucalyptus hints.
Palate
Crisp, tangy. As expected,oak is overwhelming. Bitter sweet chocolate. Water takes it on the bitter side.
Finish
Long, liquorice.
Comment
The nose is a delight. To enjoy the palate,you have to be a wood freak.

Nose
There is a Christmas cake note here, but then wafts of incense come through. Humidor and dried tobacco with a hint of oak too. A little minty.
Palate
Massive oak hit followed by some sweetish chocolate and burnt sugar. Despite this there is a freshness to it.
Finish
Long and oaked.
Comment
Takes a while to get friendly with but well worth the effort.
