Tasting Notes

Nose

Fresh pine sap, a deep dark spiciness, rich fruit cake and menthol tobacco notes open up beautifully. Behind this is a lingering cedar wood/sandalwood too, which a drop of water helps to focus.

Palate

More of the aromatic wood, with a strong tannic Darjeeling note, liquorice and a particularly robust claret.

Finish

The tannins refuse to leave, but so do the cedar wood notes.

Comment

For a ridiculously elderly gentleman, this still has plenty to entertain with. Perhaps the spiciest of the siblings so far.
