Price: £136.40 - £136.39

Official Tasting Notes

Nose – A mild nose-feel, with some prickle: lightly nose-drying. Quite hard to discern at cask strength. The subtle aroma is reminiscent of nougat, with traces of dried apple, on a z sty orange peel base. A drop of water smoothly adds creamy chocolate, and boosts the orange note. But aroma is not the main event here.

Palate – At natural strength, mouth-filling and smooth in texture. The compelling and powerful taste starts with the sweetness of caramel toffee, while an answering touch of orange peel sourness introduces a surprising, warming intensity that swells with complex spices. With water, the whole effect is much sweeter and smoother: still spicy, though the latter now decides to be part of the story, not the main theme.

Finish – Long, warming and increasingly spicy, leaving the palate tingling. Lightly drying, too. With water, sweeter and smoother, leaving an aftertaste of milk chocolate.
