Product Description

Supplier Tasting Notes

Aroma - Sweet sherried aromas weave into layers of roasted hazelnut, soft fudge, milk chocolate, and plump, rumsoaked raisins. Flashes of fresh citrus peel break through and, combined with polish notes, balance the sweetness.

Taste - Smooth and spicy; warm demerara sugar disperses over warming chilli, cinnamon, and clove spice flavours. Intense, thick-cut orange marmalade notes unfold into a lingering charred oak edge.

Finish - Long, spicy, refined, and well-balanced.
