Nose
Sweet yet savoury. Baked fruits,peach cobbler,damson,sloe berry,dried cherry and cassis, all mixed with cigar. wrapper. Hint of balsamic. Huge, complex and showy.Meaty in time (and with water).
Palate
Those sweet and funky notes play off each other.Concentrated berry fruits then comes out orange bitters.
Finish
Drying oak.
Comment
All darkened nightclubs and secret assignations in Mulholland Drive.

Nose
Intense.Polished old furniture.Dried fruit.Sultanas soaked in a cinnamon syrup. Treacle. Rich Christmassy sweetness. Old sherry. Opens on a fresher note of mint chocolate.
Palate
Sweet at first then revealing a crisp fruity sourness.Sherry in a velvet glove… Oak is elegantly integrated.
Finish
Big,long,drying on spices.
Comment
The charming old-fashioned touch of an confectionary shop lined with oak panels. Rich, elegant. Takes you back to your childhood Christmases.
