The Panel felt this one was a curious mix of many features. Initial nosing suggested pencil erasers dipped in honey, polished shoe leather, white chocolate mice, golden sultanas, Turkish delight in a cigar box and damp tobacco leaf. With water it was still a rather broad jamboree of styles and aromas: lots of cornflour, dry-roasted peanuts, camphor, rapeseed oil, light vanilla, coal scuttles and old oak sea chests. The palate opened with roast coffee grounds, bitter dark chocolate, fig rolls, muscovado sugar and aged dry madeira. And it was still rather leathery, with some roasted almonds too. Water added barley sugars, candied citrus peels, jasmine flowers, lanolin, butterscotch and sweet ruby ales.
