A fresh and gristy nose of lightly herbal, rich, refill sherry, barley, fleshy gala apple and hints of perfumed white flowers. With time the aromas become quite malty with a developing liquorice and treacle note.
Opens with plenty of mouth-filling creamy toffee moving into moist fruit cake territory. Seriously juicy and raisiny with hints of plum, malt, treacle and liquorice.
Long with the raisinated fruit lingering, gentle spice and a late cognac-esque dried fruit rancio. Lightly herbal.
