Warm and toasty fruit aromas of pomegranate, cranberry and candied orange peel hint at deeper notes of breakfast cereal. Palate is smooth and rife with more tropical flavors of dried apricot and fresh fig to enjoy before finishing with finesse and elegance.

While "extra finished” for two years in ruby Port casks, the impact on the spirit is minimal, imparting a rose-gold hue and a shadow of red berry flavor. Though it lacks the "wow factor” of the Nectar d’Or, it’s still quite good: Expect a warm, fruity scent with a hint of cedar and a smooth caramel-honey flavor with baking spices on the finish.
