Appearance: Light, bamboo to straw color
Nose: Candied honey with some caramel and some woodiness.
Palate: Very sweet, rich honey flavors, vanilla and a measure of plum with slightest bits of peat and Stilton cheese.
Finish: The honey goes on and on, joined by toast and nuts.
Appearance: Amber color verging on the greenish tints of olive oil.
Nose: Pure candy and fruit, flirting with rich, toasty peat.
Palate: An immediate dose of hard candy that softens into honey and vanilla, then a range of spices—with ginger, cinnamon, basil, tarragon, slight pepper and licorice.
Finish: Very long with pronounced licorice, nuts toasty, a slight grittiness and rich woodiness. Persistently sweet and honeyed.
