The nose was both interesting and appealing – appeal from sherry-soaked Christmas cake, honeyed apricots, balsamic-glazed pears, spun sugar, dark toffee and gorse flowers; and interesting thanks to benevolent smoke, tobacco, burlap, old sailing ships and new cars. The palate got us quite animated – cinnamon, nutmeg and iced gingerbread, molasses, toffee apples, honey-glazed ribs, salty limes, sweet sherry, prawn tempura and ‘biting a leather steering wheel’. The reduced nose – ‘Tim Burton gothic candy floss’ and ‘Sixteen men on a dead man’s chest’. The palate now gave honey, toffee and vanilla, plus wood, leather and ash. From ‘Scotland’s Glen’.
