Tasting Notes by Billy A
Nutmeg, raisins, digestives biscuits, ginger nuts, toasted orange peel, banana bread, coffee cake, rich red wine and fruit cake batter, with a meaty background.
Toasted oak, orange peel, fresh mint and butter. Behind that sit the ginger nuts from the nose, with honey comb, bitter clove, artisan cola and lots of dark sherry oak: dry oloroso, raisins and sultanas. Green leaves and rancio hints creep in at the end.
Spicy sherry, ginger and leafy notes. Sweet sultanas, raisins and light fruit cake linger on the palate.
