Clear, golden amber with bright gold highlights.
A leathery fudge nose with vanilla, orange zest and subtle peach aromas.
Diluting to 40% yields a richly flavoured slightly bitter (dry oak) palate with subtly peated vanilla, bitter marmalade, citrus and nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger spice.
More delicate peat smoke emerges in the long finish.
Closure: Natural cork stopper
