Nose
This is filled with the aromas of ripe apple, nutmeg, oak lactone and a soft sweet chocolate fragrance that brings to mind crème eggs.
Palate
A well integrated mix. Stewed rhubarb, apple and that creamy oak note. Water brings out a slightly bitter note on the finish.
Finish
Just a little too hard.
Comment
The finish pulls it down. Other than that, very approachable and highly drinkable.

Nose
Fruity, juicy. Sour fruit. Fresh paint. Quite sharp but very pleasant. Vivid. Develops on deep oak and orange custard. Faint smoke.
Palate
Velvety. Oily. Mouth coating. Multilayered. Spicy. Ginger and white pepper.
Finish
Long, loads of liquorice. Nutty aftertaste.
Comment
A complex lad. Needs time to smooth and release its sweetness. But worth giving it attention.
