An interesting, unusual nose that got us animated and disputatious; it had a sweet and sour character (butterscotch, toffee and vinagre de Jerez) and lots of wood (salt and tobacco-infused wood panelling in an old ship). The palate had intense, dark sweetness (sticky medjool dates, manuka honey, moist ginger cake, cinder toffee, dark chocolate, blackcurrant jam). The reduced nose conjured a composition in wood – a single kumquat inside an orange box inside a tea-chest; eucalyptus, charcoal and a creosoted fence; also bourbon biscuit and malt extract sweetness. The palate now developed dry oak, dark chocolate lebkuchen and a vaguely medicinal note.
