Clear, golden amber.
Honey rubbed old leather with delicate floral and citrus notes.
Remarkably fruity and honeyed for its advanced years with delicately cinnamon and nutmeg spiced oak providing back bone rather than dominating.
Long, satisfying velvety finish extends the complex and balanced palate. A super premium collectable with a flavour to match its price point - it tastes like a million dollars.
Closure: Natural cork stopper
