Nose: Sweet flavours from baked citrus tarts entwine with aromas of orange marmalade and maple syrup. This subtle zing is perfectly wrapped in a sweet nuttiness and overflowing spices. Taste: An unmistakable texture flows over the palate, rich toffee sweetness, buttery vanilla and a swirl of house honey form the perfect sip. The initial sweetness from perfectly toasted oak, dispels to reveals layers of candied ginger, a hint of cardamom & ground aromatic spices. Finish: Oaky and everlasting.
