"The oranges and lemons speak loud. The nose also displays sweet porridge with raisins and dates. The mouthfeel is proper oily. There's brown sugar, plums, dates and cherries. It is slightly spicy too, with cloves and nutmeg. The finish is medium in length and lingers on sweet cherries and sultanas."
