Deep harvest gold in colour. An initial scent of tart fruits, soon merging into baked apples and orange zest, with a trace of vanilla on a faintly tropical-floral base. A drop of water adds a hint of oak shavings. A smooth texture, with a sweet apricot start, drying in the warming, spicy finish. At reduced strength, the taste is more tart, with a slightly charred, oaky aftertaste.
Nose: Plum in syrup, roses, a sweet woodiness.
Palate: Orange marmalade, dark chocolate, a slight bitterness.
Finish: Lingering sweetness and acidity, spices and wood.
