Tasting Notes

"A fresh and fruit-forward nose shows notes of melted butter, salted caramel and a full fresh-berries basket - it actually smells like a buzzing seaside market town on a Sunday morning. A rich and sweet palate with tons of toffee, brown sugar, honey, raisins and citrusy hints. The lingering oaky finish makes it a go-to for any occasion."
