Nose
Chicory,Camp coffee and masses of dried fruit; a whiff of Lea & Perrins, then boot polish and burnt timbers.
Palate
Immediate tannic grip.This is all leather and treacle combined (which brings a somewhat alarming image to mind) Any sweetness which was once there has long gone. There's just a hit of rancio and a little clove.
Finish
Bitter.
Comment
Too long in the wood.

Nose
Sherry,sherry and sherry again. Antique shop,old furniture. Moss, damp earth. A hint of fungus. Sweetness lies in the back,as if chained by wood.Dates,molasses. Grated dark chocolate.
Palate
Oak juice,not much more… Astringent and bitter.
Finish
Bitter and spicy.
Comment
I have the feeling I keep repeating myself. It seems I have already swallowed a forest of Spanish oak.
