What a colour! What a nose! Dried orange peel, redcurrants, balsamic, yoghurt-coated raisins in a nutty chocolate and making old school hand-dipped beeswax candles. Then, what an arrival on the palate! So chewy, mouth-watering and full-on without being aggressive - this is truly old school spirit meeting old school sherry! A drop of water and we were in oloroso heaven; milk chocolate-covered walnuts, Turkish delight, plums figs and freshly squeezed sweet blood orange juice. To taste now, big red fruits balanced with the dry edge of cinnamon buns and clove spice all washed down with an exquisite coffee liqueur.
