Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Malty. Oatcakes. Müesli. Fern, wet leaves. An earthy touch. Cooked apples. Then citrus fruit. Candied orange. A sherry influence but not overwhelming. A floral hint of lilac.
Palate: Smooth, velvety. Incredibly sweet given the alcohol strength. That sweet toffee and treacle gives way to a dry spicy explosion. Oak frames the spices.
Finish: Dry, very spicy, with a slight astringency. Dark orange chocolate.
Comment: Perfect for a dreich November day.
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Cane sugar, leather gloves, pencil boxes, brown sugar on porridge, roasted cob nuts. A forest floor note.
Palate: Sweet, barley sugar, golden syrup and crème caramel but then the spicesbuild. There is a nice oak grip to this too.
Finish: Spicy, warming and then a gentle fade.
Comment: Very pleasant and moreish. The alcohol is well mastered.
