    • Nose
      There are aromas of vanilla and toffee present, followed by a number of soft
      dried fruits and nuts. After a few minutes in the glass, there is also an
      interesting and slightly bitter edge that comes through.
    • Taste
       The taste is fuller and is more reflective of what can be found on the nose. Init sweetness of toffee and vanilla notes are present, hereinafter dried fruits, nuts and spices.
    • Finish
      The finish is long, lush and spicy.
