Nose
Cardboard, leather horse saddles, damp grass and raw ginger.
Palate
Better on the palate, it's like an Old Tom whisky with some Juicy Fruit, tobacco, and strawberry juice with cream.
Finish
Strawberries and cream, this is surprisingly sweet.
Comment
Gives sweet tones and probably would go down well doused with ice.

Nose
Perfumed and fragrant wood polished with beeswax polish. Orange cheesecake and mint choc chip ice cream.
Palate
Lighter than the nose suggests with golden sultanas and yellow plum. Malty flapjack studded with date and fig.
Finish
Rounded, fat and juicy.
Comment
The nose promised a little more than the palate.
