Nose
Odd winey notes, slightly sour. Green plum and pear drops, then a note like warm Fino sherry. Touch of saltiness and a little smoke. In time oilskins. Water adds complexity. Seems old but very fresh.
Palate
Rounded and sweet. Deep palate where the vanilla/coconut notes mix with nutmeg and that briny quality. Olive. Succulent and long.
Finish
Coal dust.
Comment
Great balance. Worth a look.

Nose
Enticing, sweet and fresh. A full basket of juicy fruit. Ripe pears, quince, white peaches. With luscious creamy notes topping the fruit. Hint of grapefruit and tangerine.
Palate
Just as enticing. What you nose is what you get. Clean and crisp with a good depth.
Finish
Drier with a pleasant display of soft spices.
Comment
A superb dram combining fruit and spice in the most elegant way.
