Supplier tasting Notes -
Nose - Initially sweet, vanilla fudge, strawberry and raspberry nuances, develop into thick apricot jam. Waxy polish aromas merge and mix with cinnamon and candied orange peel. Gentle and lingering smokey traces complement the balanced mature oak notes, with time, a subtle, fresh mint note unfolds.
Taste - Smooth; subtle sherry soaked fruit flavours fuse with a fresh orange zest and cardomom undertones. A slightly dried herbal element develops and transforms into mouth-watering cracked black pepper and aniseed flavours. Delicate smokey notes endure.
Finish - A smooth, long, lingering finish introduces elegant charred oak and flashes of citrus.
