Appearance : Clear, honey golden appearance.
Aroma : Wonderfully inviting buttery honey, golden syrup with overripe banana, almonds, nougat, fudge, old oak and smoky tobacco.
Taste : Full-bodied palate balances sweet notes against espresso coffee bitterness and dry oaky notes with an overriding maple syrup/honey silkyness.
Aftertaste : Butterscotch, fudge and tobacco spice last throughout the slightly white peppery finish.
