The nose is rounded and a tad smoky. There are notes of rubbery sherry and chewy sultanas, hints of tannic oak and mixed dried fruits with fruitcake and spice. A not of honeyed fresh tobacco emerges. The palate is full with a chewy texture. There are notes of barley sugars and sultanas and sherried peels. There is a trailing wood smoke note. The finish is lightly smoked and well-oaked.
