Rich and aromatic. Initial burst of treacle/toffee opens up to uncover raisin and blood orange and, deeper still, aromas of apple, sprinkled with ginger, cinnamon and chocolate. Layers of dark vanilla embellished by soft burnished oak.
Rich dried fruits, with raisin strongly to the fore. Viscous layers of sweet ginger, figs and cigar leaf, before the oak emerges, polished yet showing the complexity of age.
Long and embracing.
