Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2011 Finalist. Deep and generous aroma of brown sugar and baking spices (vanilla, nutmeg) impresses; taste profile features vanilla, dark chocolate and honey; delicious.

The initial aroma includes scents of treacle, spice and flower garden; further aeration brings out aromas of black pepper, cola nut, dried red fruit, and molasses. The palate entry is long and toffee-like; at midpalate honeyed, apple butter-like, and creamy flavors add zesty spice to the aftertaste.
