Tasting Notes

Nose

Deep, powerful and concentrated. This has moved into almost rancio territory: eucalypt/laurel, spice, burnt orange peel, apple, pear, biscuity wood.

Palate

Soft and surprisingly delicate given the age. A charred note adds to the complexity. Gentle and elegant: cigar box, prune, molasses, soot.

Finish

Long. In fact it's very, very long and complex.

Comment

A subtle sipper to be taken neat and definitely without ice!
