Finish: Fresh and zesty with a sudden reverse on the finish where the toffee returns.
Comment: Balanced and complex. Recommended.
Nose: Intense, rich. Dried apricot, dates, sultanas. Old leather. Cooked damson\rplums. Candied pineapple. Opening on crème brûlée.
Palate: Rich, with a refined viscosity. Damson plums again and spices. Nutmeg,\rcinnamon. A fungal touch. Oak is elegantly integrated.
Finish: Dry with a slight oaky grip but nothing unpleasant.
Comment: The nose of a cognac XO, the palate of an old bourbon. Absolutely enticing\rand full of class.
