Official Tasting Notes
Aroma : Initially cascading aromas of dried fruit and rich sherry. Hints of wood polish and candied fruit combine with an intense note of orange oil. Banking spices- clove, nutmeg, allspice- combine before revealing a subtle menthol edge.
Taste : Initial matgure oak notes open into flavours of autumnal berries: blackberry, blackcurrant, redcurrant and cranberry. Crystallised ginger devolps while traces of dark chocolate add complexity. Aniseed notes remain.
Finish : A delightfully balanced fruit and oak finish; nutty notes underscore a subtle but lingering humidor edge.
