Nose
Woody and spicy. Sticky toffee pudding with dates, bitter walnuts, Brazil nuts and rubber. Plenty of orange: a spray of orange oils, a sprig of orange blossom and the leaves from orange citrus fruits.
Palate
Velvety and unctuous, with ginger, cinnamon and paprika sprinkled atop that toffee sponge. Chocolate, followed by pink grapefruit.
Finish
Hot, sweet spice, with warming ginger outlasting the rest.
Comment
For the fireside – bonfires or indoors. Should be enjoyed year-round.

Nose
A classic sublime sherried whisky. Raisins, dried apricots and sultana, with crushed hazelnuts and hints of brandy. Orange marmalade. Golden syrup cake. Divine.
Palate
Dense texture. A brilliant execution – echoes the nose, but adds maple syrup, baked pears, blackcurrants with aniseed. Delightful underlying nuttiness and olive oil quality.
Finish
Long, oily, with oranges, raisins, hazelnuts, dates and warming cinnamon.
Comment
Textbook stuff. Perfectly executed and well balanced.
