Intricately layered aromas of sweet spice, freshly toasted wood and brandied fruits on the nose. The flavor is spice-driven with some green wood flavors that mellow into coffee and chocolate. A gentle smokiness pervades the fine grained texture. A velvet explosion of rich buttery malt, chocolate and spice. Tangy orange and ginger marmalade melds with treacle syrup and rich chocolate cake, leading to a long and warming finish of barley sugar and spice.
