Nose: A warm aroma of mixed spice and barley sweets gives way to powerful herbal sweets and freshly stewed mincemeat.
Palate: The palate is sweet and syrupy with notes of barley sugar, dried oranges and a re-occurrence of herbal sweets off-set with a touch of menthol.
Finish: The finish has a pleasing bitter edge and lingering notes of allspice.
Overall: This is a cocktail that offers something greater than the sum of its parts. The herbal and menthol notes are refreshing whilst the bitterness on the palate is excellently balanced against any residual sugar.
