    In a nutshell, full of deep rich honey and dark roasted hazelnuts. This is very, very good. The influence of the Sauternes casks brings lovely thick, dense sweetness along with a touch of acidity that resonates perfectly with my palate. I'll be adding another bottle (or two) of this to the collection shortly. Value (£70) : 9/10
    • Nose
      Sweet treacle and sticky toffee pudding. Sweet dates and poached pears covered in butter and caramel sauce. A dollop of cream and Manuka honey. Pecan pie and buttered cinnamon buns. A squeeze of golden syrup. Dark chocolate and some roasted coffee. Vanilla comes through. Apples in cinnamon and a light ginger hit. Toasted hazelnuts. Some dark berries as well along with sweet figs. I get a light sense of sulphur here, like freshly struck matches but nothing overwhelming. Light cooling menthol. A slight alcohol burn on deep inhalation but nothing suggesting that it is almost 60% ABV.
    • Taste
      Here it really shines, thick and mouth coating in texture. Dark sweet Manuka honey and Muscovado sugar. More dark chocolate and espresso notes come forward. Toffee with a dash of salt intensifying flavour. Sweet and sour berries come through with more peaches, leaving a touch of acidity. More buttered caramel. Orange marmalade and touch of vanilla dusted with cinnamon and cloves. The tannins then come through with black pepper spice here along with some drying tobacco. There's quite a noticeable chilli hit too behind the sweetness.
    • Finish
      That mouth coating texture on the palate really lengthens the finish I think. More wood tannin led here with some more drying spice. That said all that sweetness from the palate almost sticks to the teeth and keeps on going. More salt sprinkled over butterscotch and dark chocolate. A lovely warming finish with candied ginger and orange peels.
