Nose
This is all bitter coffee grounds and walnut whips.Australian sherry, heavily oxidised notes,but then a surprising lift of raspberry.
Palate
This is like diving headfirst into a pile of leaves and emerging with a mouthful of twigs and earth. There's some marzipan and sultana,but not for me.
Finish
Tight.
Comment
Another that's lost it.

Nose
Oaky. So black. Another sherry monster. Treacle,dark chocolate.
Palate
A sweet start then the bitter kick of the wood. Walnut stain with a rough feel on the tongue.
Finish
Bitter,astringent.
Comment
Too much wood for me. I love herbal teas but not with an oak infusion.
