No age statement
Nose: Smoked cheese, citronella. Damp earth and wet rock. I was reminded of the inside of a megalithic tomb. Leather and crepe suzette. A light cheesiness again.
Palate: Burnt twigs, fruit bonbons and tangy orange marmalade.
Finish: Earthy and drying.
Comment: A mis-nomer?
Nose: Bread dough, yeast with some maturity. Good balance with water which brings out spicy oakiness and a deep slightly nutty centre with raisin and dried flowers, then dry bracken.
Palate: Slightly stubborn to open. Solid but in time a zesty note and a contrast with coriander spices and a vanilla-led sweetness.
Finish: Sadly this falls apart on the finish.
Comment: It was all going so well...
