Tasting Notes:

Colour
Deep Amber

Nose
Massive notes of orange marmalade spiced with cloves and nutmeg, then stewed dark fruits, caramel chocolate, sweet tobacco and freshly baked cinnamon Danish pastries.

Palate
Gentle warming spices, clean malt barley, toasted nuts, a hint of cola cubes and warm Jamaican spiced ginger cake give way to a tidal wave of indulgent Christmas flavours. Sherry laden mince pies served hot. Figs, dates, dark cherries, marinated in winter spices and reduced to a mulled winter fruit compote, accompanied by sherry and vanilla Chantilly cream.
 
Finish
Luxurious and rich, warm spiced Christmas pudding, laced with burnt orange syrup, interlaced with hints of liquorice and black forest gateau, frothed latte and chilli infused dark chocolate finally give way to an eternity of those returning warming Christmas spices, dunnage oak and gorgeous, sweet tobacco.
