Great nose again, but as for Double Oak, you get a bit more on the nose than on the palate. However, that may be a good thing, because it’s highly drinkable anyway, so the more you spend time stuffing your nose in the glass, the less way to quick your glass and your bottle will go down.
We’re definitely in Oloroso territory: sherried dried fruits, candied orange peel, warm spices immediately set the tone. A mentholated note makes a link with the Double Oak. Drying tobacco leaves. After a moment, a bit of funk, an ever so slightly sulfury note of rubber, but one that reinforces the character of the nose, not one that ruins it.
Nutty arrival with almonds and hazelnuts. Christmas cake, menthol and liquorice. There is a slight oaky bitterness and tons of milk chocolate. At each sip, some fruity notes appear then they’re quickly replaced by a spicy nuttiness.
The nuttiness stays with you until the end whilst a bit of grapefruit appear for a warm and long finish.
