Producer’s tasting Notes
Nose: Honey, herbs and toffee early then sliding to mint toffee with ferns and vine leaves. Nice, gentle & ferny woody notes that get a sour edge which is slightly sappy.
Palate: Big, rich and much more Christmas cakey than the nose even slightly hinted. More oomph with plums with a spirit bite; very warming, some slightly astringent stone fruits and there’s some wine barrels, maybe port or sherry, best bet is medium dry sherry.
Finish: Some sour fruits and dusty oak, warming alcohol. Apricot and pastry comes out in the end along with wood bitters. The apricots and the wood really linger.
