Clear, golden amber.
Pungent oily fruitcake/banana cake, vanilla fudge, hazelnut and cedarwood with red apple, dates and figs. Water brings out zesty lemon citrus.
Fruity with sweetness balancing strength. Citrusy spice, barley, liquorice, toffee, brazil nut and butterscotch with cracked black pepper. Well-balanced without water but how often do you want nearly 60% alc./vol. served neat?
Long, fruity, spicy finish with lingering butterscotch and barley.
