Nose: Apple pies, sponge cake, big wafts of caramel and chocolate. Spice and crushed almonds.
Palate: Cherry, honey and plenty of oak. More spice than the nose. Classic old leather notes and apple peels. Dried fruits and vanilla.
Finish: Brown sugar and rich oak - quite long.
Overall: Big and packed with fruit, though balanced with oak and leather - what a dream!
