Nose - Quite dark and sweet, a malty Ovaltine with milky chocolate, lashings of caramel sauce and a touch of coconut Bounty bar.
Palate - Rum truffles, cloves and dark red fruit, more caramel, a chewy syrupy texture, slightly drier than on the nose, a little more oak.
Finish - Rather long, the sweetness of the nose returns, less dry than the initial palate, caramel persists but more on crème brûlée.
