- Fruit Cake

by Billy Abbott
- Nose: Dark and earthy, with candied orange peel, leather, walnut, spiced fruitcake, fruity dark chocolate and green apple tarte tatin. There's a touch of forest floor and green leaves, adding some background meatiness.
- Palate: Soft and oily, with liquorice, anis, sticky cherry, dark polished oak, ground coffee, dark chocolate and orange zest. On top of that heavy base, there are also some lighter notes of green leaves and rose petals, as well as burnt raisins, malted milk and chocolate milkshake.
- Finish: Gently spicy with bitter orange, dark damp wood, Autumnal forest floor and a hint of rubber.
