A sweet character on the nose. The alcohol bite is still vivid on the palate. Water tends to enhance bitterness.

Nose: Sweet cereals. Muësli with dried red fruit. Vanilla syrup. Lemonade. Digestive biscuits. Summer fruit salad. Hint of green tea. With water, orange curd.
Palate: Sweet at first then follows a spicy outburst. More vanilla. A minty touch.
Finish: Sherbety and dry.
Comment: A sweet character on the nose. The alcohol bite is still vivid on the palate. Water tends to enhance bitterness.
Nose: Big, chewy and very sweet with baked/caramelised fruits and masses of banana, coconut and a hint of geranium. A fat, sweet popcorn quality. Robust.
Palate: Equally big and perfumed with good depth. An interesting slightly burnt quality that also hints at fresh varnish. Then comes toffee, light coffee and with water, fennel.
Finish: Rich and sweet.
Comment: A belter of a grain with typical Port Dundas funkiness.
