The nose is quite soft and light. There is a well balanced sweetness with juicy fruits and dried peels. Raisin notes rise with a touch of winter spice and malmsey. Some buttery vanilla fudge notes emerge with a beautiful cereal character. The palate is of medium-body with a toasted barley character. A gentle sherry note develops with chewy sultanas and vanilla spice, there is a superb creaminess with caramel and gristy notes with a touch of greenness. The finish is of good length with a lovely sweetness.
