The nose is quite subtle and of medium-body. There are notes of rich, lush stone fruits and Bramley apple, a hint of peel and some Calvados notes. There are some dry wood notes with a definite mustiness. The palate is quite full and round with plenty of bourbon notes. The winter spices and vanilla crème abound with a chewy oak underlying. A little dark chocolate appears. The finish is of medium-length with dry oak.
