Nose: Butterscotch and vanilla toffee lead, with crunchy barley sugar notes developing in the glass. Toffee apples, peach and spiced bread notes build, with beeswax and light honey notes following. Candied lemon and orange peel hide at the back.
Taste: Honey-drizzled brown bread and freshly sliced apples lead, slowly turning darker as treacle toffee and raisins build. The freshness continues as darker notes develop, with pears and lemon peel on top and singed fruit cake underneath.
Finish: Vanilla-sugar-dusted apple slices and toffee slowly fade to reveal cinnamon toast and apple peel.
