No age statement
Nose: Sweet and fruity. Mealy with kumquat, passion fruit and marzipan.
Palate: Oily with some fruitiness but a carbolic soap flavour begins to dominate.
Comment: Either the sample bottle was not rinsed out or this is just plain weird.
Nose: Perfumy. Crème caramel. Crème brûlée. Then slightly acidic.
Palate: A hint of black chocolate. Dry. Cider apples. Cedary. Slightly woody. Astringent.
Finish: Slightly bitter.
Comment: The fresh, charming bouquet was a revelation, but the palate was a little careworn.
