NOSE: Nice and big, with soot and a honeyed / syrup edge, then some sticky dark fruit, maybe damson; then some camphor, oily bandages and a whiff of seaspray. Develops juicy apple notes, toast and some waxy and heathery notes with time in the glass. Forward and assertive, certainly not shy. Very appealing. Water tames it a bit, emphasising sweeter oak notes.
PALATE: Big and full. Sweet attack initially, like shredded wheat with honey; a hit of soot and smoke, then peppery spices as the oak steps up a gear. Cadbury’s Fruit & Nut. Salt chocolate. Old-fashioned rhubarb & custard boiled sweets. Bonfire smoke & spices gradually assume control. Water seems to make it more youthful, a flaxy, earthy note appearing alongside the honey.
FINISH: Long, dry and briney at full strength. Earthy and a little hotter with water.
