Tasting Notes

Nose

Mandarin, varnished oak and marzipan. Chocolate orange and some pear. With a little time some musty, damp vegetation notes appear which are not unpleasant. Mint toffee too.

Palate

Lots of orange, milk chocolate and some sappy oak. The texture begins sweet and syrupy but is quickly dried out by the wood.

Finish

Mouth-drying, slightly astringent oakiness.

Comment

The oak borders on intrusive at times, but just managed to restrain itself.
