Aroma:Spanish oak casks deliver wonderful rich notes, elegant and polished. Raisin,dates and figs dominate like a mountain of fruit; sultana and toffee applesadd texture and depth. The weight of flavour practically squeezes the juicefrom the raisins, dark and rich with great viscosity. Ginger and cinnamongently dance around the edges - the ginger slightly dry, the cinnamon soft.Dark chocolate is majestic, whilst vanilla sweetness lingers in the background
Palate:Heavy and sumptuous. Like a rich fruit cake with raisin, dates and figs,apples, sultanas, orange; then ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon and hints of clove.Oak notes are like velvet, soft and chic, silky smooth. Oak notes are likevelvet, soft, chic and silky smooth.
