Nose: Walnuts, earthy vanilla and toffee apple leads. Rich, syrupy dried fruits emerge though a blend of tobacco and coffee. Subtle molasses rises through dense oak in the backdrop.
Palate: A nutty opening carries rich molasses and baking spices among soft fruity notes of apricot and honeyed sultanas. Buttery vanilla, dark chocolate and cigar box blend with coffee and toasted brown sugar underneath
Finish: Fiery cinnamon fizzes through creamy vanilla and dry oak.
