Aroma

Pungent. Vanilla custard, cinnamon, orange zest, dried apricot and overripe banana with dark chocolate, coffee and nougat. Coal dust emerges with water.

Full-bodied. Dried fruit, vanilla, dry spicy cinnamon oak, light tar and bonfire smoke. The wonderful balance and body falls apart somewhat water – best enjoyed neat.

Overall

Pungent, full-bodied and characterful. Tar, light bonfire smoke and dry spicy cinnamon oak is mellowed by vanilla custard, floral notes and dark chocolate.
