"Apples and orchard fruit on the nose, along with apricots, honey, and floral notes. Palate shows a range of dark vanillins, along with an oaky and spicy profile, also offering raspberries, and burnt caramel. Green apple comes on the back palate. The finish has notes of raw honey, toffee, and burnt caramel, along with a tinge of sharp spice. Similar to its 14-year old cousin, yet darker, richer and fuller."
