Official Tasting Notes
Nose - The complexity of flavours combining on the nose makes this a joy to try and decipher. Initially a citrus, lime zest, fresh orange style is met with rich caramel and oaky notes of dried apricot, pipe tobacco, maple syrup, oak shavings, toasted hazelnuts and vanilla syrup.
Palate - That citrus style, lemon zest and and then the sweetness from the oak meets the palate beautifully, the texture is like warm honey and brings notes of maple syrup, walnut, toasted oak and wood spice.
Finish - The finish is gentle, sweet caramel, dried fruit, sultanas, lemon drizzle cake, hazelnuts and milk chocolate. Its' softness is calming.
