Nose
Rich. Deep. Oak is blatant but toned down by sweet malty notes. Nutty. Nuts and raisins milk chocolate bar. Stewed prunes. Dry apricot.
Palate
Sweet and smooth. Mouth coating. Nearly syrupy. Prunes again and a spicy kick. Powder ginger.
Finish
Lingering, Dry, a slight astringency.
Comment
On the edge of being too woody but manages to keep a pleasant balance if you give it time, peace and quiet ! A tribute to old age?

Nose
Cafe latte notes hit first, steamed creamy milk and coffee beans. Big rich flavours develop. Leather and oak.
Palate
That bitter oak hits first but mellows into a sweet syrup taste. Mouthcoating with spices developing.
Finish
Long and drying.
Comment
A good everyday dram that shows balance and complexity.
