Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Autumnal. Damp leaves, turned earth, chocolate truffle, hint of rancio. Barley sugar, privet.
Palate: Very smooth and silky. Good maturity. Cereal notes. Crisp, woody texture.
Comment: Another where the nose promises a lot, but the palate doesn't quite deliver.
Nose: Notes of sherry, fruit, chocolate, and ginger.
Palate: Sherry, raisins, chocolate, ginger. Quite luxurious.
Finish: Unhurried, with chocolatey notes and gingery dryness.
