Nose
Baked plums and fig jam. Pumpkin pie, physalis and tangerine with fresh oak. Water develops orange turn over cake, dark butterscotch sauce and warm, damp leather.
Palate
Very warming and quite savoury like bresaola. Spicier fruit notes of orange and grapefruit peel. A slow burn with brown toast and plum jam, cardamom in the finish.
Finish
Masculine and earthy, and yet refined. Sizzling over the tongue, long and satisfying.
Comment
This is a wonderful bottling. It has the suave and brooding character of Mr Fox in Jemima Puddleduck.

Nose
Icing sugar coated citrus. Hints of light coffee and herbal infused sub-tropical fruit. Lovely maturity and elegance with a touch of grilled nuts.he oak become dusty in character.
Palate
Lightly honeyed, sub-tropical fruit. Nutty, lightly coffeed with hints of dried apple, dark chocolate and treacle. It gets darker and maltier and a Cognac-esque, oxidised fruit rancio becomes evident.
Finish
Damn good! Exceedingly long with the coffee spices and beautiful dried fruit notes lingering.
Comment
One word – Stunning!
