It lacks an edge but lovely stuff for sure,
At first I thought the nose was on the light side but if you work at it there is a lovely old school, slightly perfumy, woody, teak oily aspect to this. Notes of dark orange marmalade emerge with moist orange cake with stewed fruit and various liqueurs.
This has some spice and pepper that mixes with cream and cake. What is striking with this one is the balance, it really is spot on and the only negative at the moment is that is gets slightly drying on the tongue. Notes of mallow emerge but if you hold it in your mouth there is a fresh kick of spice and fizzy sherry but a lovely lighter sherry with a hint of caramel and some ice cream wafer
The finish is really good it dances on your tongue but the dryness curtails it a little
