Nose
Pears in cider with custard and chocolate, rich and sweet. Leaf mulch and a sweetness of spun sugar. Oak comes through with a carpenter’s lathe, fresh oak, toffee pennies, leather seats.
Palate
Very gentle, but fruits start to emerge, honeycomb and a toasted oak, coconut macaroons. Then spice starts, a little tannin.
Finish
Gentle, soft and spice laden, some of those fruits (mainly apples and pears) come through right at the end.
Comment
Like being in a vintage MGB GT. Seriously easy drinking but depth if you look.

A Devonshire boy goes on a tropical trip. There's a hit of perry, enjoyed on a grassy hill. Finished a little musty.
Palate
Fruits come to the fore, but if you were expecting just cider orchards, you're in the wrong hemisphere. Think coconuts and other tropical delights. Still a nudge of oak, rather than palm trees.
Finish
Surprisingly gentle after that hit of fruit. We are right back in the orchards!
Comment
Quite lovely. There's something homely about this one, but still has a few surprises up its sleeve. Well balanced.
