Clear, golden amber.
Tightly integrated mixed spice with toasty cedar wood and nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla most obvious.
Medium-bodied, vanilla and liquorice sweetness with dry cinnamon spiced oak. Very well balanced with no one spice dominating. Pleasing rum notes are also allowed to shine through the mixed spices.
Dry, long woody vanilla finish with delicate spice.
