My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Dark gold
Nose: Stewed apples, raisins, grapefruit, marzipan, polished wood, toffee, hints of pepper.
Palate: Very gentle peat, sweet grapes, apple pie, tropical fruit, honey, nutmeg and pepper, some chili, faint hints of fresh herbs.
Finish: Long, fruity and spicy.
Overall: The spices are a litte too dominant to let the fruity elements truly shine here.
Rating: 86/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
