NOSE: Rich dark chocolate, cigar box and raisin opens to hints of old oak furniture start to develop (some leather notes here, too!). It take a few moments before touches of Cognac-like rancio appear.
PALATE: Continuing Christmas Cake, and a pinch of tobacco remains. Chocolate orange brownies, coffee beans, chewy dried fruit adds to the richness. Sparks of cinnamon and black pepper in the background, bringing a comforting warmth to the palate.
FINISH: A long finish, boasting thick notes of Sherry and butterscotch. Seville orange marmalade and ginger develop later.
