Nose
Pastry out of a hot oven. Slightly smoky. Fresh pears in butterscotch sauce.
Palate
Light to medium body. Like exploring a box of chocolates. Milk chocolate first, then dark. Chocolate limes (perhaps the odd kumquat), then mint creams.
Finish
Liqueur-ish. Soothing.
Comment
Despite the rich descriptors, I found this slightly sharp with some vintage Glenfiddichs.

Nose
Aromatic. Hyacinth, raisin, dried apple, chocolate cake, preserved plum. Good depth and complexity.
Palate
Soft with a good steady flow. Chocolate ganash, orange, tobacco. Flattens a little towards the finish. Good grip.
Finish
Fragrant. Spiced oranges. Grand Champagne Cognac.
Comment
All very elegant and sophisticated.
