Nose: Initially Sweet - vanilla fudge, strawberry and raspberry nuances develop into thick apricot jam. Waxy polish aromas emerge and mix with cinnamon and candied orange peel. Gentle and lingering smoky traces complement the balanced mature oak notes. With time a subtle fresh mint note unfolds.
Palate: Smooth: Subtle sherry soaked fruit flavours fuse with fresh orange zest and cardamom undertones. A slightly dried herbal element develops and transforms into mouth-warming cracked black pepper and aniseed flavours. Delicate smoky notes endure.
Finish: A Smooth, long lingering finish introduces elegant charred oak and flashes of citrus.
