The first nosing exposes dry scents of walnuts, grass and dark toffee. Entry is malty and vanilla?extract bittersweet; midpalate is silky, creamy, Sherry sweet, pruny and black raisin-like. Ends on a dark chocolate note that's chewy, medium-sweet and satisfying.
Amber. Medium and round. Peaty aroma with lemon and sea salt. Hints of dark chocolate and pears. Smoky flavor remaining throughout, with a touch of heather and honey. Long and satisfying.
Stately aroma reminds me of butter- cream candies; further air contact reveals deeper scents of melon, white raisins, dried yellow plums and fudge. Entry is honey-sweet, ripe and fruity (dried yellow fruits, banana, pineapple, pear); midpalate is long, satiny, honeyed, eggy, fruity and balanced. Concludes on notes of Sherry, apricot, white raisins and light toffee.
