Nose: A big nose of cinnamon stick, clove, vanilla, peppermint, caramelized sugar and dried fruit
Taste: Very spicy, with cinnamon, crisp mint and fennel, underlying sweet notes of caramel, molasses, vanilla, macaroon, cocoa, and candied fruit.
Finish: Takes hold with huge rye spice, cinnamon, orange rind, and vanilla and it lingers for ages.
