Tasting Notes

Nose

Huge cake mix like aromas, caramel, shortbread, Demerara sugar and a hint of eucalyptus. Certainly not shy. Best neat and as it develops there's citrus, spiced apple juice, celery and parsnip chips. Rounded and quite hefty.

Palate

Dense and slightly fungal, chestnut mushrooms and leaf mould.

Finish

A hefty charmer -John Betjeman or Robert Crumb would appreciate the\rbuild of this.

Comment

Give it time. Balanced, complex and recommended.
