The tasting revealed,
Nose – a shy nose initially opening up with chocolate caramels, fruit compote and a savoury spice edge.
Taste – dry and oaky with notes of baking spices, apple skins and desiccated coconut. Move towards a sweeter character with a cooked bananas and candied orange.
Finish – full long finish with great balance of sweet and dryness. Notes of high quality hot chocolate, lingering warm oak and winter spices.
