Nose
Fruity with a distinct spiciness. A general fleshiness backed with integrated oak, thick honey and the lovely smell of a cowshed. Broad and rich but there's a slightly greasy note which pulls it down.
Palate
The nose is intriguing, but the palate is flat absolutely no life to it.
Finish
Slips away unnoticed.
Comment
Maybe a faulty sample for this has no energy at all.

Nose
Fragrant. Malty and fruity combined with well integrated oak. Toffee, mixed dried fruit. Dates and walnuts. With water a earthy touch.
Palate
Smooth and velvety. The same fruit and oak combination as on the nose. A bit watery at midpalate. Medlars, coffee toffee. Getting drier and nutty.
Finish
Soft, nutty. Walnuts. Touch of ground ginger as well.
Comment
Well balanced and pleasant but it would have delivered much more at a higher strength.
