    N: Colour: nearing prune juice levels. Smells of sherried prune juice too, giving away dessert-sweet aromas with a desirably murky underbelly. It’s a truly lovely snifter with all sorts of descriptors and nasal textures, one that is heading towards a dry savoury herbal tincture territory.
    T: A tart-resinous yet fruity malty sweet reveal, a touch prickly/peppery before turning decidedly more malty, putty-ish and grainy. Plenty of teak furniture and beeswax on the turn.
    F: Foosty/damp-fresh fruits and forests, with a sweet herbal polish. Quite an exquisite landing [I’ve been watching a lot of Commonwealth Games diving and gymnastics of late]. At the death, vanilla, compote fruits and some ash.
    C: At times I felt it could have stayed in the oven longer, and as delightful as I found it, the cask and its previous contents were a tad heavy.Scores a B[+]

    N: As that amazing unadulterated colour would suggest, the shoe polish is out on full view with leather-bound books, soy sauce, leeks,….. it's one of those shopping list noses.
    T: Dry and less lush than I expected - that's stopped me in my tracks!
    F: That mature dry-oaked-sherry leans back into an old armchair and settles like age-old dust. 
    C: It's a late starter that excels on the last bend. This one needs time, so I'll bottle it for later. With a more in-depth review to follow, this provisionally scores 88 points. Blog
