The nose is very thick and supple. There are notes of barley sugar, toasted cereals and the whole is awash with toffee and vanilla fudge. There a notes of juicy stewed pears and Cox’s Orange Pippin. Notes of chewy sultanas and aged Cuban rum. The palate is of good body with a great richness. There are notes of golden syrup in both flavour and mouth feel, notes of sherried peels and sultanas, hints of rum and winter spice and a buttery note. The finish is quite thick and long. There are notes of crème de cacao and toffee apple with vanilla fudge and a touch of oak.
