Nose
Lemon and pears poached with turmeric and saffron, heady and exotic. Perfumed flower pollen, frangipane and pineapple with a waxed balsa wood.
Palate
A tingle of mace at the tip of the tongue then a thicker syrup like texture. Lemon cake with sherried sultanas, ginger nut biscuits and spiced carrot cake with buttercream icing.
Finish
Big and silky texture with a clean finish.
Comment
Sultry and brooding. Katharine Hepburn in a glass.

Nose
Initially, a little whiff of sulphur, then talcum powder, chopped nuts, ginger cake and brown sugar. Given time in the glass, the sweeter notes begin to open up.
Palate
Quite dry, with a big hit of vanilla, some dried fruit (dates and raisins), a little nuttiness and a rich caramel.
Finish
A slightly thin note creeps in, but the palate is left with a dry, slightly spicy oak, alongside the dried fruit.
Comment
Well rounded and nicely balanced, despite a slight off note at the beginning.
