Nose: The faintest hint of farmyard in the distance. Orchard fruits up front, with some added caramel and nutmeg. Hints of nuts.

Taste: Rich and full-bodied. Sweet and spicy. Berries og various types; rowan berries low on bitterness.

Finish: Medium to long finish. Fruity with an edge. Not quite bitter, but .. hmm .. zesty.

Comments: As always a treat.
