Tasted Blind:

Delicate and inviting.  Distant smoke on a grassy meadow.  Sweetness of pound cake, simple syrup and sherry. White wine and mineral.  More compact on the palate with astringent  fruity notes.  White peach, nectarine and pineapple.  Mid palate to finish gets quite spicy and waxy.

n:  Stunning.  Orange brandy and spanish cedar.

 

p:  Old school HP.  Orange rinds and damp firewood, hint of cinnamon.  Bitter finish.

 

One of the best HP noses ever. 

 
Ries
 

n: caramel, oak, dry tobacco leaf, and old leather furniture

 

t: Malt and damp earth. Nice dry citrus waxy flavour that gives this an unique expression. Spiced oak and maritime shows in the middle (like oyster brine).  [A-/B+]
