Tasting Notes

Colour

Dark copper gold.

Nose

Sweet home baking aromas; brown sugars; vanilla cake dough, butterscotch, with notes of spiced caramelized bananas.

Taste

Incredibly rich and complex, spicy and peppery, yet with fruity notes of figs, dates and cinnamon. The finish progresses through subtle traces of autumn spices to the sweet tinges of bitter chocolate and honeycomb toffee with the tannins lingering long in the mouth.
