Sampled on 26/06/2013
Clear, golden amber.
Vanilla rubbed nubuck leather, linseed oil, lemon, freshly sawn oak and putty with faint ripe pear and ever so delicate nutmeg and cinnamon spice.
Much spicier on the palate than the nose suggests with cinnamon and nutmeg cutting through herbal, leathery oiliness with citrus to freshen and invigorate.
Spice is tamed but ever present throughout the dry, herbal, putty-like linseed influenced finish.
Closure: Natural cork stopper
