N- My all time favourite from the Solist series. Expressive, rich and dark. Dates syrup, pickled nutmeg and 'notoriously' spicy playing the first fiddles. Then finely chopped parsley and herbs stirred into the hot melted bitter chocolate ganache. Sherry, walnut adding more plus, but seems whiff of raw wood developed at the tail. (87/21)
P- Succulent, deliciously sweet. Herbs, nutmeg juice with laden of dried fruits. Explosive as always, black pepper, raisins and sweet pickled ginger with retaining warmness. (92/23)
F- Long, full and rich. Walnut and strong black tea. Hints of metals, resin and multifaced with plenty to explore and arousing. (90/22)
Weighted Rate- 89pt, some flaw from the nosing with impeccable palate and finishing.
