Nose
A light sherry influence like amontillado. Golden castor sugar, warm wooden decking with beeswax polish. The nose became a little elusive with water, it lost its way.
Palate
Pink grapefruit sprinkled with brown sugar under the grill, then more tropical fruits of guava and mango. Terrys Chocolate Orange and mocha coffee.
Finish
Satin smoothness.
Comment
Classic and classy - I preferred it neat.

Nose
Butterscotch sauce, dry sherry, a slight hint of something soapy, alongside some fruity yogurt notes.
Palate
Heather honey, a little spirit, plus a dry oakiness. It feels a little one-dimensional and the wood influence is very clear cut.
Finish
Short, with a little spiced oak.
Comment
Perhaps a little tired this one. Something of a curate's egg.
