Nose: Definitely on the sherry side. Caramelised nuts, almost praline. Old leather. Sweet bakery notes: crème caramel, marmalade. A distant bacon echo.

Finish: Long, sweet and nutty.
Comment: A bold character. Rich, sherry-armoured. Dangerously palatable even without water.
Nose: Robust. Starts with cream toffee, honey, light cereal/hay. Then stewed autumn fruits, cake mix, toasted almond, raisins, maple syrup.
Palate: Tongue-coating. Deep. Dried fruits. A good attack with a sweet concentrated start. Good balance. Cognac like.
Finish: Spicy. Tingling and dry.
Comment: Fine mix of dry and savoury. A grower.
