Notes

The rich, deep nose has few top notes –– cello, not piccolo; cinder toffee, fruit cake, prunes, treacle, oiled cedar and polished leather – also something sweet and creamy, like vanilla yoghurt or maple cream. If the nose hinted at sherry, the palate shouts it – massive sweet sherry (almost Pedro Ximenez), maple candies, liquorice and earthy wood notes – like chewing pine cones or biting a skateboard. Flavours rumble in the mouth like boulders on the bed of a rushing river. Water brings the nose to softer sweet treats (marzipan, honeyed apricots, chocolate Turkish Delight). The palate now receives Demerara, persimmon and Marrakesh spice.
