    I am surprised this is the first note on this bottle as they are regulars at auctions?
    The nose is light, fragrant, honeyed & zesty.
    The taste is nice & sweet but a little one dimensional an aperitif for sure is this one.
    Touches of white wine, hint of vanilla and greengages, kiwi fruit, not demanding but pleasant.
    It seems to get even sweeter after a few minutes and a welcome wave of spice emerges so you have to give this one time.
    Not one for peat heads or sherry heads but a simple sweet pleasure, I like it.
