Nose
Intense, grainy Bourbon oak. Gritty tannins. Herbal and hoppy with apricot, honey and tangerine. Hints of rum-like dried fruit. Like a grain whisky with water.
Palate
Soft and honeyed with light coffee and oxidised fruit. Darker flavours in the middle as a treacle note emerges. Less oak than the nose. Water emphasises the dried fruit and spices.
Finish
Very oily with the herbal note returning and the treacle note lingering. Quite dry and alcoholic neat. Water lengthens but still dry.
Comment
My only quibble is that it's a bit dry on the finish. Best with a drop of water.

Nose
Again we have an active sherry cask which just gives me plum chutney and a hint of mango. Maybe some cherry drops in the background, adding sweetness to the nose.
Palate
Sweetness as you'd expect coupled with a hint of treacle and rich fruit cake.
Finish
A hint of salt and more of that fruit cake, but this time with icing.
Comment
I'd have this in place of a slice of wedding cake, next time I find myself celebrating someone's nuptials.
