Nose
Intense, rich, deep oak. Antique furniture shop. Touch of Turkish delight. Fading roses. Dried fruit. Dates and raisins. Opens on pastry notes. Dundee cake. Coffee and walnut cake. Really enticing.
Palate
Round, silky (raw silk). Wood is dominating but in an elegant way. Rich, melted oak. Tobacco leaf. A hint of burnt wood.
Finish
Lingering, dry, with a clean astringent edge.
Comment
A superb after dinner dram.

Nose
Melted brown sugar, salted caramel and rosewater. Eccles cakes and buttered pastries. Antique oak boxes, wardrobes, with a floral edge.
Palate
Cigar tobacco, plenty of sweet oak, demerara sugar, cream fudge and a fried tomato note.
Finish
Moreish, sweet and lush, with a hint of liquorice.
Comment
The liquid equivalent of hiding in the wardrobe, no lion or witch mind you.
