Chestnut brown color. Smells of prunes, black raisins, dates, figs, caramel, creme brulee, custard. Taste profile is lush, chewy, dense, raisiny, pruny, toffee-like, nutty. Finishes mildly salty, keenly nutty, complex.

This is heady, with butterscotch, rum raisin, toffee and Christmas pudding notes leading the way, showing definition and freshness. Spearmint, charcoal, buckwheat honey and crystalized ginger accents grace this mouthcoating, very long version. Drink now.óJ.M.
