Nose
Looks like a light rose wine and with a nose of flowers, cranberry and pomegranate it smells like one as well.
Palate
That red fruit quality it retained but its hot which at 46% suggests that the oak hasn't helped to dampen down the alcohol.
Finish
Delicately fruity, but too ethereal
Comment
No real complexity. Maybe longer in cask would have helped. Compare to the Penderyn.

Nose
Light but tangy. A floral note combined to summer fruit. Strawberry, redcurrant. Cream-soda.
Palate
Thick, almost syrupy. Very sweet. The same summer fruit notes as on the nose. Pomegranate juice.
Finish
Dry, medium long.
Comment
The colour indicates a wine finish. Port maybe. A perfect companion for a fruit dessert.
