Tasting Notes

Nose

Apricot and orange marmalade with thick cut, sweet vanilla oak. White winey fruit and a barley-like note. Bitter chocolate adds balance.

Palate

Opens with syrup and honey coated late harvested white grape and orange conserve. Lightly earthy with some developing crisp spice. Subtly oaked with late herbal rye and pepper. \n

Finish

Long, with a light toasted marzipan note. Slightly austere as the alcohol cuts through the sweetness; a pleasantly dusty spiced after-taste. \n

Comment

Although the alcohol balances the sweetness, I think it’s one for those of you with a sweet tooth!
