Nose: Distant but immediately discernible autumn leave and fir wood smoke with pine needles, along with vanilla and apricots and then the eucalyptus/thyme/menthol/mint kick in
Palate: Good mouth feel, rounded, fruity and well balanced, slightly nutty, good solid alcohol with no unexpected heat, good tannins.
Finish: Lively fruity (apricots) and something minty and nutty and some burnt notes and those characteristics remain solid
Comment: A lovely, well balanced package that spells Autumn for me and the after taste just keeps on keeping on. Lovely stuff.
