AROMA: Rich stewed fruit aromas – raisin, prunes, and apple with demerara sugar. Subtle roasted coffee bean notes come to the surface alongside cocoa powder. Sweet cinnamon spice complements vibrant citrus peel with a touch of beeswax polish.
PALATE: Mouth-watering; gentle hints of pepper give way to juicy orange and dark chocolate praline. Flavours of red apple and nutmeg combine with charred oak.
FINISH: Long and fruity; lingering oak with a very subtle wisp of smoke.
