Nose
Big,layered and soft.Oak/cedar notes and smoke. Linseed oil, sesame,melted candle,wet vegetation. Light heather,peat then dried fruit. Great complexity.
Palate
Needs water. Rounded,sweet and complex with a concentrated wild berry fruit character intriguingly mixed with tarry ropes. Black cherry. Tongue-coating and oily flow.
Finish
Smoke,dark chocolate. Briary fruits.
Comment
Substantial,multifaceted and complex. Highest recommendation.

Nose
Grassy. Heavy shower on wet soil. A touch of damp walls. Then it opens on toffee (salty butter toffee). Ginger biscuits.
Palate
Crisp, dry. The smoothness comes after. Quite balanced. Lots of cinnamon too.
Finish
Dry but soothing on liquorice and cinnamon.
Comment
A rich character,slowly displaying a beautiful array of spices.
