    The nose is rich with a touch of orange. Sugary vanilla and honey

    notes with plenty of barley and malt. The palate is full and rich. Notes of

    bourbon and rum; dark sugar, honey, barley and buttery malt. There are some

    notes of arak and a sugariness. Lots of spicy and peppery oaked warmth creep in.

    The finish is long and very spicy with a lingering sweetness.
