Nose
Seems young. Some dried grasses and a cabbagey note with hint of dried flower. Light raisin and a burnt, coppery edge. Slightly plain.
Palate
Estery, rum & raisin to start with a thick centre. Young.
Finish
Gentle and soft.
Comment
Decent dram but seems a tad dolled up.

Nose
Sylvestry. Pine needles,drying leaves in autumn. Then indoor aromas. Polished floor,orange peel. So well integrated. And complex.
Palate
Smooth, round. Mouth-coating. Very caressing feel. Medlars, autumn fruit with custard. Soft spices.
Finish
Dry .Liquorice root. Soothing down on a dry almond note.
Comment
Like walking in a wood on a warm day and coming back home to enjoy Granny's pudding. Heart-warming.
