Deep gold, with orange lights. Very good beading.
A mellow nose overall, with very light prickle; lightly nose drying, with first faint and delicate impressions of fruitiness and dried flowers, beneath which there’s a note of buttery sponge. A drop of water enhances the dried flowers, brings up the sweetness and adds spicy touches of sweet ginger and hardwood shavings.
At natural strength, mouth-filling and ultra-smooth in texture. The taste is immediately rich and very sweet, with light dried fruits; golden sultanas in light liquor. It quickly becomes spicy, with tannic gunpowder tea in mid palate, and is drying overall. Similar though softer with water, when sweet toffee can be discerned.
Long, smooth and spicy, finishing with a shake of powdered ginger and a lingering, embracing warmth. With water, smoother.
