Clear, light coppery amber.
Dried apricot fruit, Christmas cake and Christmas spice with clove infused linseed oil and faint toffee/fudge.
Rich, fruity and spicy with just enough dry sandlewood, bitter almond and tea-like tannins to add balance and depth.
Long, rich, spiced finish. Overall just a tad too spicy but a most pleasing dram all the same.
Closure: Natural cork stopper
