Nose
Waxy with charcoal,stewed pear,XV olive oil,baked bread,burnt stick (smoke),nuts. Complex.
Palate
Slightly lacking initially on the front, then immediately deepens. Very oily and rich. Orange zest gives much needed balancing energy .
Finish
Robust and smoky with black pepper and liquorice.
Comment
Appetising and generous.

Nose
Shy at start. Hesitate between cereal and fruit. Slightly meaty. Chicken stock. And a grassy scent. Like a garden after a thunderstorm shower on a scorching hot day. A minty touch.
Palate
Flowing. Quite light bodied but assertive. Warm vanilla custard. The alcohol bite and the spicy profile give a tingly kick.
Finish
Quickly fading. Dry spiciness.
Comment
Fiery. Lacks balance and character. Water cuts the edges but does not improve the aroma delivery.
