Tasting Note:

Red-hued amber in colour, the nose it is mellow and the aroma profoundly complex. Mild at first , and vinous, with fruity top notes suggesting a rich fruit cake with wine-soaked raisins, candied orange peel and toasted almonds. Medium to full bodied, on the palate it is light yet creamy-smooth; a very slightly waxy texture and mouth-watering, sweet start with a notably fruit clove-studded spiciness, succulent blackberries and muscovado crumble. The finish is very long, fruity, and warming, with a lingering spicy warmth and a hint of salted plums in the aftertaste. The latter is increased by a drop of water, when the whole aftertaste becomes unusually menthol-cool.
