    The nose is very well-balanced with a good richness. There are notes of sherried

    peels and fruits, winter fruit cake steeped in brandy with notes of chewy

    raisins and an oaken dryness. A little spice develops with a touch of smoke. The

    palate is of medium-body with a velvety, sublime delivery. There are notes of

    walnut and hazelnut with hints of vanilla cream and toasted oak spices. The

    finish is long and spicy with peppered oak and gentle spices rising

    A bit of a disappointment, but most likely due to my sample.
    • Nose
      The nose is soft and sweet, but not very aromatic. Needs both time and hand warmth. Honey and roasted nuts appear first, followed by some dried oranges. A bit of coffee and marzipan come through. Benedicine liqueur. Walnuts, too. Gets better as time passes. Patience pays.
    • Taste
      What a pity! On the palate, it is very watery and shows a bit of OBE. Light tannins and cold tea push the sweet fruit to the background. Mild on nutmeg. Falls apart, I am afraid.
    • Finish
      The oak dominates in the medium long finish.
