Nose: Dessert in a glass. Stewed plumbs with thick orange marmalade toped with spun brown sugar. Dark Chocolate gateaux joins morello cherries steeped in syrup. Hazelnut praline complements notes of vanilla.
Palate: Luxurious blackcurrant coulis layered over stewed rhubarb with flavours of delicate malted chocolate. In time, freshly roasted coffee beans and soft wood tannins offer richer undertones.
Finish: Refined and lingering. Hints of aged leather with a gentle nutty edge slowly fade to mature oak nuances.
