The panels initial notes for this one included manuka honey on warm brioche. Some further notes of slightly burnt toast, then blackcurrant jam, leather tobacco pouch, walnuts and lovely, warming and resinous new oak spiciness. Behind that we also noted some caramel, liquorice and heather flowers. Reduction brought youthful dessert wine freshness, coffee cake, stem ginger in syrup, vanilla essence and freshly opened cedar wood cigar boxes. When neat the palate displayed immediate and impressive balance. Unctuous and syrupy in texture, with vapour rubs, menthol sweets, treacle toffee, caramelised banana and more layered notes of tobacco, olive oil cake and sticky dark fruits baked in Armagnac. Reduction offered a return of the manuka honey, dried citrus peels, orange oils, baked apples, raisins and peppery woody spices. This particular expression was distilled from Concerto barley.
