Nose
Big sweet oloroso impact,raisin and a hint of sulphur adding a lift. There's walnut,sticky toffee pudding,coffee bean & black vetiver on top of stewed apple.
Palate
Solid toffee-ed start. Super ripe black fruits. Balancing tannins. Robust weight and deep nuttiness shifts into treacle toffee.
Finish
Spicy.
Comment
Deep,layered and sweet with great balance. Seek it out.

Nose
Winey. Oaky. Red wine (or port cask), damp warehouse. Raisins,a hint of chocolate. Oak dominates. Dry walnut.
Palate
Sweet and crisp. The spicy burst comes quickly,covering the sweet fruit. Sultanas,dates, figs. Ginger. White pepper. Quite sherbety.
Finish
Dry. Spices dust. A hint of sulphur.
Comment
A port finish? The port or sherry influence is patent. It has conveyed a lot of sweetness, maybe too much. Alongside with oakiness (but a sweet one,nothing astringent).
