Clear, dark amber.
Sweet cinnamon spice, hint of nutmeg, toffee apple, slightly treacled – almost Christmassy.
Rich, full-bodied with honeyed fruit cake, vanilla, toffee, creamy caramel, butterscotch, fudge and an orange marmalade.
Ginger and nutmeg contribute to the spicy notes, which are the enduring flavours in the long caramel, vanilla finish.
