Neil Ridley

Nose
A big sherry influence, with polished wood, Brazil nut shells, a hint of struck match/sandpaper, dark chocolate and turned earth.
Palate
Chocolate malt, bitter cocoa, some burnt caramel, dried fruits (dates and figs) and molasses. As dark in flavour as you could get. Then one darker.
Finish
The remnants of dried fruit mix with some oaky dryness.
Comment
A bold statement, this one. If you like heavily sherried drams, this will appeal, if not, perhaps time to reconsider.

Rob Allanson

83
Nose
Deep forest floor notes, piles of leaves, allotment bonfires in the distance, turned soil. Then there is sweetness, strawberry laces, hazelnut chocolate and honey nut cornflakes.
Palate
Bran muffin dough with an earthy note developing. Masses of sherry soaked raisins and mango chutney.
Finish
Big spicy explosion and then a lingering savouriness.
Comment
A serious autumnal dram.
