Producer’s tasting Notes
Nose: Christmas cake and brandy pudding, lifted alcohol, macerated fruits, especially sultanas and raisins, stewed apricots and some orange peel. Some sandalwood and dry mint. Slightly nutty. Hints of varnish and French polish and dusty oak. The alcohol gets more ethereal and with some marshmallow or nougat. Lovely freshness, clarity and depth, good development over time.
Palate: Rich, sweet and sour plums, nuttiness with a spirit bite; very warming, some slightly astringent green herbs. Medium dry sherry.
Finish: Some sour fruits and dusty oak, warming alcohol. Wood bitters.
