The tasting revealed
Nose – honey and ginger straight away with citrus notes of blood orange and marmalade. A dusty cocoa powder and concentrated vanilla character emerge.
Taste – lusciously thick and mouth coating with hints of tobacco, pecan nut, creamy vanilla and oak. Moves towards notes of blackcurrant cordial and baking spices.
Finish – dry roasted peanuts, treacle toffee and a light cinnamon powder dusting. Tropical fruit shows through but is all held together with oak tannins and wood spice.
