Tasting notes
Taster   Neil Ridley
Nose: Freshly peeled mandarin orange, lychee, passion fruit, and blackcurrant leaf.
Palate: The blackcurrant takes the wheel for a spin across the tongue, with a note of very dark cigar leaf, overripe fig, bittersweet PX sherry and very dry, tannic Rioja.
Finish: Bold oak and the cigar leaf hang around, with a faint puff of cigar smoke.
Comment: Excellent.
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Dried raisins, damp linen, polished oak, beeswax, pork scratchings, lino floor covering, but also bags of fruit salad, some exotic fleshy fruits and vanilla sugar.
Palate: Syrup sweetness hits first, peach juice and then the prickle of apricot skins. Waxy mango skin with a little citrus. But there are some dark, roasted spices building.
Finish: Spiced and big, with a little humidor edge to it.
Comment: A wonderful integrated dram.
