Nose
Fairy Liquid and very resinous wood hit first, unusual notes to begin with, but things start to settle down, with malty wholemeal bread, Marischino cherries and vanilla pods. With water, it's into tangerine, blackcurrant and floral handsoap.
Palate
Quite hot at first, needs water to open up. Then it's into tangy citrus notes, more blackcurrant and drying oak.
Finish
Woody, with a little citrus orange.
Comment
Quite a limited palate, but really pleasant enough.

Nose
Warm syrup, drying tobacco leaves, sheepskin blankets, apples and raspberry juice, hot buttered toast, a little Vegemite tang and herbal cough sweets.
Palate
A sweet and sour vibe going on here with a splash of chilli heat too. A citrus zip, lemon rind and lime juice, then the oak brings sweet vanilla.
Finish
Dries with those oak notes.
Comment
Not a bad dram, a little water helps it reveal more on the palate.
