Nose: Rich and intensely spiced nose with all kinds of stewed fruit. Hints of burnt sugar, candied peels, Christmas Pudding and brandy butter.
Palate: Surprisingly rich and malty palate. Quite sweet and creamy with porridge oats, allspice and aniseed. Big sherry. Tannic and intense.
Finish: Medium-length, spicy finish.
Overall: Very interesting indeed.
