Clear, honey golden appearance.
Wonderfully inviting buttery honey, golden syrup with overripe banana, almonds, nougat, fudge, old oak and smoky tobacco.
Full-bodied palate balances sweet notes against espresso coffee bitterness and dry oaky notes with an overriding maple syrup/honey silkyness.
Butterscotch, fudge and tobacco spice last throughout the slightly white peppery finish.
