Nose: Smoky, waxy, Manchego cheese. A whole fruit bowl including berries and oranges. Those pink and blue Liquorice Allsorts. Pepper berries throughout.
Palate: Ash and Tabac, soot and blackcurrant, and a little more of that sweet liquorice.
Finish: Sweet, Sherried oak magic.
Overall: This stuff is pretty bloody epic - as good if not better than last year's (which was the best festival bottling of 2013). A real winner.
