Nose: Thick, juicy slices of fruit cake, with cocoa and toffee sauce drizzled on top. Clementine segments and vanilla pods.
Palate: More citrus notes, with honey-nut cereals and plump raisins. Sherried spices, old leather and a waft of sea-breeze.
Finish: Long and rich with plenty of raisins along the way.
Overall: A shipshape dram with masses of character. Lovely work as ever from Old Pulteney.
