Nose: Hazelnuts, spicy cinnamon, raisins, candied orange and floral touches up front. There's quite a lot of sweetness, with some dry, leafy notes balancing barley sugar and vanilla fudge.
Palate: Thick and oily, with dark chocolate, real maraschino cherries, dark wood, plump raisins, freshly sawn oak, spicy cinnamon (almost to Hot Tamale levels), liquorice and biscuits - garibaldi biscuits with cherry jam?
Finish: Spicy cinnamon hangs around, with raisins, more cherry, toasted oak and a bit of barrel char.
Comment: Lighter than the old Flora and Fauna, but still packed with flavour: sweeter and fudgier than before, but with a good slug of sherry-cask-matured whisky in the mix.
