Nose: Despite that ABV the nose takes its time, very shy. Then alcohol hits, followed by tobacco-scented cedar wood, red cherries and hints of spearmint chewing gum.
Palate: Once the alcohol pickle rolls through, there’s a distinct cherry sweetness, brandy snap biscuits and just a gentle hint of smoke.
Finish: Everything rolls together, lingers a little then dries with a hint of buttered pastry.
Comment: Once you tame the ABV beast there is a lovely soul hiding in here, full of sweetness and spice.
Nose: Closed at first, with a little prickle, this fruity number builds slowly with time. Apples, pears, plums. Olive oil and sesame. Tarragon and a hint of oud wood. A slight creaminess, too. The merest suggestion of smoke.
Palate: Black tea and bergamot, candied orange, and dried pineapple. Sultantas and a little almond.
Finish: Medium length, a little prickle, those fruity notes carry through.
Comment: Shy at first. A tiny touch of water does the trick to open this up.
