A light bronze-honey colouring.
Nose marked by chocolate flavours, smoke and clove spices. Almost like mulled wine which develops into floral attributes.
Initial caramel makes way for toffee apples, then onto apples and pears.
Finish more spices, liquorice and bitter chocolate at the back of your throat.
A perfect balance between whisky and sherry.
