Official Tasting Notes

Nose - Wonderfully rich aromas of juicy black cherries nad intense orange peel, transforming into velvety milk chocolate. Sweet toffee comes to the fore alongside mature oak with fragrant lavenda.

Palate - Creamy with hints of white pewpper and sheriied stewed fruits. Sweet baked apple flavours with autumnal spice - cinnamon and anisedd with a slight menthol edge.

Finish - Delicate cinnamon and baked apple notes lionger on the foinish.
