Appearance

Rich antique gold.

Body

Medium to rich. Good viscosity.

Nose

Oily, waxy and nutty, balanced by ripe orchard fruits. Notes of almond fruit cake on denser Christmas pudding, with cereal and orange behind.

Palate

The comforting chewiness of rich fruit-bread, hints of orange zest and clove, growing drier, still minty, with crisp green apple.

Finish

In a word, long. Quite syrupy at first, then drying, with elegant coating tannins rich in dark chocolate character.
