The nose is crisp with excellent clarity. Notes of juicy sherried sultanas. A creamy sweetness with a touch of honey and some feinty leathery notes with a little vanilla and malty barley. The palate is very thick and full with oodles of spiced fruit, both fresh and dried, some peel, a beautifully toffeyed oak with rich acacia honey and pepper. The finish is long with spicy toffee sweetness, vanilla fudge and juicy fruity esters.
