Nose: Complex aromas of toffee, hints of orange peel, herbs, honey, leather and oak
Taste: Bold, dry, oaky flavors with notes of candied almonds and very rich cocoa
Finish: Dry and lingering
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points - Reminiscent of candied apple on the nose and also showing baked sour cherry, citrus pith with a hint of toasted oak. In the mouth it is wonderfully rounded with cinnamon, stone fruits and brown sugar stepping forward. The finish is decadent, deep and alludes to the baked sour cherry that is sensed on the nose.

Tasting Notes: Great sweetness with citrus and spice making it very complex.
