A gorgeous dram for those looking for something rich and a little surprising.
Nose: Coffee beans, sponge cake drenched in sherry, mint leaf, slightly buttery, sultana.
Palate: Rich, thick and packed with juicy-but-dried fruit – rum-soaked raisins, prunes and a touch of chopped date. Nutmeg and cinnamon sit underneath along with sticks of black liquorice. It's more savoury than the nose suggests, focusing on fruit cake and bitter dark chocolate.
Finish: Damp leaves and a hint of mint. Raisins and dates linger.
