A couple of lower-cost bottles from the Wine Society do battle against eachother, then a SMWS bottle gets added to the mix to see how it compares in both price and complexity (and value?).

Nice nose! coconut. Smells sherried. Ooo, hello! fruit salad fused with alcohol - so much fruit in there!. Bacon, demerara sugar. Orange peel and cloves. A really intense plum pudding. Jeez-o, this is striking!. Old plum brandy, ancient basil.
Tutti fruitt sweets - know what ah meen? Colour: Midnight piss. No wood character, surprisingly. Fucking brilliant. tastes like sweetened ronseal! Tonka beans. Super christmassy. Marron glace.
