Clear, antique gold.
Buttery sweet pastry nose with aromas of stewed ripe sweet pear, shortbread, cloves and burnt raisins.
Tightly integrated palate with fabulous interplay between smoke and rich butteryness.
Delicate smoke drifts around on the finish with coconut husk, hints of buttery oak and a sprinkling of cracked white peppercorns.
Closure: Natural cork stopper
