81
Nose
Mashy, cereal notes, plant leaves and vanilla. Plain chocolate and raisins.
Palate
Lots of fresh spices and a carry-over of dark chocolate from the nose. Malty and oily.
Finish
Relatively long and spicy, with chocolate notes becoming fruitier.
Comment
Starts off nosing younger than its years, but grows into itself with time.

Rob Allanson

85
Nose
Bread-like notes, reminiscent of fresh cut barley. Breakfast muesli. Great layers of vanilla and Maltesers.
Palate
Waves of ground spices and melted chocolate; in fact chocolate covered cornflakes. Some dried fruits.
Finish
Long and leaves a malty aftertaste.
Comment
A little shy at first but this is well worth the wait.
