Tasting Notes

"The nose is all sherry upfront, with prunes, beeswax, and dried, honeyed fruits, backed by dark chocolate, toffee and a heathery, floral character. The palate is similarly deeply sherried, with sultana raisins and walnuts followed by creamy fudge, ginger and raspberries. The finish offers citrus zest and candied citrus chews, with spiced Christmas cake. "
