    On the nose we start out with classic soft fruit notes. Think pink lady apples mixed in with caramel and a touch of raisin. Touch of water brings out sponge notes and bring the overall flavour much closer to that classic sherry cask "Christmas cake" note.
     
    Palate manages to hit very similar notes to the nose. very noticeable sweetness from the apple and caramel. Lovely little bit of oak spice kicks through as well. Touch of water brings out burnt notes and brown sugar.
     
    Finish is medium with mostly just the spice lingering around. Dryness in the mouth after it has been sent down.
