Nose
Oak. Lots of it. A slight rubbery/sulphur note which flies off revealing dried fruits and general jamminess. Vinous.
Palate
Strangely flat with a basket filled with fleshy fruits hiding quite aggressive oakiness. Heavily sherried,seems sweetened up. Slightly better with water there's cranberry and cream.
Finish
Thick and long.
Comment
Lacks balance for me. Overloaded in the oak department and also too sweet.

Nose
Toffeish. Caramel. Hazelnut fudge. A citrussy hint. Seems to give its best at first nose. A hint of fresh paint. A faint sherry note too.
Palate
Very sweet. Watery and sugary. Caramel again then some faint sherry notes. Dark fruit. Raisins.
Finish
Quickly fading.
Comment
Does not give all what you expect. Like a too soft cushion. Not comfortable in the end. It would be interesting to taste it at a higher strength.
