Nose
Mushroomy forest floor, polished wood, coffee and walnut, raisins, orange peel and oily gears. Duck consommé and Madeira. Liquorice root, powder ginger and cinnamon.
Palate
Unctuous with dried fruit. Chocolate with prunes, dried blueberries, cinnamon, liquorice and spicy black pepper. Rolled pancakes in acacia honey. Leather elbow patches.  
Finish
Clove and cinnamon, oil dipped with ciabatta bread.
Comment
A top-drawer dram. Body, power, complexity and interesting development.

Nose
Intense sherry gorgeously expressed – figs and plum jam, balsamic vinegar and tiramisu. Cigar boxes, corks and pencil shavings. Blackberry jam, orange marmalade and elderberries. Then some nutmeg and chicory drink.
Palate
Elderberry and port-like, with sticky toffee pudding. Dried fruits – raisins, figs, dates. Ground coffee and bitter chocolate.
Finish
Wood heat, not tannic, layers of hedgerow fruits in a jam.
Comment
I swooned a little at this. Magnificent. Such balance, such depth!
