Nose: Dried fruits ripen, then soften. Vanilla accompanies green apple hand in hand. Ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon create an ensemble in the background, with strong notes of polished oak and a depth of resinous, juicy oranges.
Palate: The palate opens rich in wood spices, slowly showing all their viscosity. Wood smoke flits in and out.
Finish: The heavier raisin and sultana flavours take over, meandering to a long full finish.
