    • Nose

      Very inviting due to the sweetness of dark ripe hedelfinger cherries and sultana raisins. I don't immediately find spiciness in the nose, but strangely enough I don't miss it either.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Mouth-filling, syrupy, the sweet fruity flavors of a fig bread with almonds, liquorice and other light nuttiness.
      The alcohol is beautifully intrigued and feels like it's bottled at just the right ABV. My palate is treated to the same dark fruit flavors of hedelfinger cherries from the scent, complemented by dark chocolate, toffee and fudge. I think it's dellicious!!
    • Finish
      90 90
      Fairly long and warming finish but my taste buds are calling for another sip because this is a real treat for me. Compliments to the distiller. Hopefully we will be served more of these gems in the future.
