Nose: Very fruity at first, peaches, apricots in syrup, a little kiwi fruit. Then a maltiness comes through, vanilla sugar.
Palate: Sweet, golden syrup and sugar cane then an intense spice burst, apple pie,Big Red chewing gum.
Finish: Really spicy and comforting.
Comment: Young but with great character.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Malty and oaky. Brown bread. Opening on fruit notes. Peaches in tin. Gingerbread. Cinnamon stick.
Palate: Sweet at first. Followed by a spicy outburst. Treacle, demerara sugar, vanilla syrup, ginger and cinnamon.
Finish: Dry and spicy. Warm.
Comment: A spicy character. The high strength is not easy to master. Water tones it down but it also takes some of the flavours off.
