"So much yumminess in this nose: custard biscuits, almonds, walnuts, licorice and maple-syrup-topped pancakes. The sherry doesn't play second part in this dram. On the palate, a rich and velvety texture brings notes of apple pie, cinnamon, creamy caramel, pastry crust, raisin bread and kumquat marmalade. The finish is lingering with citrus hints and exotic fruits."
