My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Dark amber
Nose: Raisins, butterscotch, stewed apples, orange zest, hints of tea and cinnamon.
Palate: Orange blossom honey, butterscotch, raisins, dark chocolate, strong tea, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Finish: Medium long, fruity and dry.
Overall: The first moments on the palate are wonderful, but the flavours fade away rather quickly. It has an gentle sherry influence that does not dominate the spirit.
Rating: 85/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
