What it tastes like:
Wonderful balance between sweet fruit, toasty oak and warm spices. Complemented with toffee, caramel and chocolate.
On the Nose:
Rich aromas of cinnamon and nutmeg, with fresh mint running underneath. Then cookie dough, brioche and honey, along with apricots and sultanas, a touch of vanilla and candied citrus peel.
