starts on caramel, developing on beehive, wax polish, apple compote. Fir honey, hints of eucalyptus, quince jelly, Mirabelle jam. Lots of maple syrup, butter caramel, Werther’s Originals. Beautiful toffee, with hints of citrus that give it a kick. Complex yet compact. Just superb and very ‘traditional’.
Mouth: very creamy, on fine caramel, fudge, Mandarine Imperial liqueur. Develops on cake, biscuits, crystallised fruits… Lots of liquorice and plum jam. Some wood but not too much, which is amazing. Some nice tannins. Rather long finish, on fudge and oak, getting finally a bit too drying.
