Nose: Rich and fruity, with some peppery spice to liven things up. That delicate orange fruitiness is there along with some creaminess from the oak.
Taste: Big flavours on the palate; clove and cinnamon spice, malted honey and clean citrus notes. Water softens the flavours, bringing out the clean fruitiness at the expense of some of the toasty spice.
Finish: At full strength, this lasts a very long time, with the fruit and spice outlasting the oak.
