Tasting Notes 

NOSE: Treacle, Fruit Salad Sweets at the start, then with apricot, Lemon and Pineapple coming to the fore, not forgetting the Atlantic turf fire in the background with coconut & Christmas pudding mix before baking.  
PALATE: The same as the last time Crumbly Wensleydale, that wensleydale you get with fruit, maybe bits of dried apricot, lemon and figs. Ahh that loving turf note that we all know.
FINISH: This just keeps coming, turf, figs, dates & Christmas pudding. lots of cigar leaf but there seems to be a real lathery texture among that deep peaty smoke with very light citrus notes and even coconut flakes.
