Very well integrated. A real improvement.
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Stewed apple/quince,then a light touch of raisin,cheese and a hint of sulphur. Mango and honeycomb\runderneath. Water brings out a fungal note.
Palate: Slick sweet start with a walnutty core, liquorice then earth. Chewy with a mix of big softfruits and earthy\rtannins giving a subtle grip.
Comment: Very well integrated. A real improvement.
Nose: Intense. Vanilla hits the nose. Apple flan. Waffles. Some exotic fruit. Guava. Combawa. In the back,a winey note.
Palate: Crisp with a malty mellowness. Rich fruity flavours. A touch of whitepepper.
Finish: Long,spicy. White chocolate
Comment: Obviously from the same family as some others on taste. Does not have their lusciousness. Oak had left a\rstronger print. A sherry finish?
