Tasting notes
Taster   Becky Paskin
Nose: A big rubbery note to start, like a bicycle inner tube, easing into polished mahogany, worn leather, walnut shells and dried fruit.
Palate: It comes to life here with more polished wood and a decadent dried fig, prune, cherry-chocolate richness. The overwhelming effect is rancio and sherry-driven, with the earthiness of a dunnage warehouse, old walnut shells and worn leather.
Finish: Liquorice, sherry and dusty leather-bound books with a fading hint of rubber.
Comment: Refined, rancio-driven and really quite intriguing.
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Led by that ABV, punchy and fresh. There’s oak coming through, a distinct new box of pencils note, a touch of rubber, then heady roses.
Palate: Again punchy but underneath is a little softer side, Maderia cake, stewed prunes and sherry notes. Red apples in cider.
Finish: Dry and autumnal and dissipates leaving orange sherbet sweetness there.
Comment: Water helps get past that punchy ABV; you will find a different character waiting for you.
