A cornucopia of aromas; hazelnut coffee with a sweet amaretto biscuit, baked apple pie, Jamaican ginger cake, old fashioned dunnage warehouse and a hint of tobacco. Very juicy on the palate neat with plenty of heat like ginger-spiced mulled wine and a pleasant lasting finish of redcurrant relish. When we added a drop of water a warm woody aroma emerged and while one of us sat in a tree eating apricots, the others carved wood from of old whisky staves. The taste was now chocolate dipped-candied orange slices, German dark chocolate rum-balls and apple cinnamon crumble.
