Nose
Malty. Oatcakes. Müesli. Fern, wet leaves. An earthy touch. Cooked apples. Then citrus fruit. Candied orange. A sherry influence but not overwhelming. A floral hint of lilac.
Palate
Smooth, velvety. Incredibly sweet given the alcohol strength. That sweet toffee and treacle gives way to a dry spicy explosion. Oak frames the spices.
Finish
Dry, very spicy, with a slight astringency. Dark orange chocolate.
Comment
Perfect for a dreich November day.

Nose
Cane sugar, leather gloves, pencil boxes, brown sugar on porridge, roasted cob nuts. A forest floor note.
Palate
Sweet, barley sugar, golden syrup and crème caramel but then the spices build. There is a nice oak grip to this too.
Finish
Spicy, warming and then a gentle fade.
Comment
Very pleasant and moreish. The alcohol is well mastered.
