Nose (23/25): Super soft and warm on the nose. I pick up vanilla, almonds, and chocolate. It smells like a lovely, sweet dessert really.
Taste (22/25): Creamy and mild on the palate. Some spiciness and mild oak notes. Fruits and sherry notes, although not very pronounce. Slightly meaty, definitely full bodied.
Finish (22/25): Long and warm finish. Ginger, oak, caramel, orange marmalade, and white pepper. Stays creamy and rich all the way.
Balance (22/25): Lovely dram. Something to serve after a good meal, when you have retired to the big chair in front of the fireplace.
