Nose: Sweet but pungent - floral touches and sour apples, with creamy porridge behind. Candy sweetness (barley sugar and toffees) sits behind, along with some darker leathery notes.
Palate: Sweet again, with a big kick of flavour - cream toffees and wine gums. Mouth-watering, with apple skin dryness and more fruitiness developing into light spice and vanilla cream.
Finish: Some dry wood, spice, warming aniseed and herbal touches - mint?
Comment: Lots of fruit and a nice kick of spice - a great winter warmer, but light, sweet and fruity with it.
Nose: Sweet and spiced with a gentle waft of smoke. Roast gammon with a marmalade glaze. Warm pastry, a bit like an egg custard tart with grated nutmeg. Hints of dark chocolate, mocha, and dark cherries. For those that fondly remember their school dinners, toffee cream tart!! Yummy!
Palate: Creamy and slightly buttery with notes of vanilla and toffee. Sweet, spicy, malty and oaky. Tropical fruits but also a hint of that 70’s classic Black Forest Gateau! Again, toffee cream tart. Long malty finish which runs from sweet to spicy and then dry.
