Very comforting and warming with notes of chocolate raisins, praline and sherry trifle. Fruitiness emerges in the form of juicy oranges, apple turnovers and a touch of chamomile.
Very rounded and the comforting feelings continue in the mouth. Slightly oily texture carrying notes of toffee, caramel and gingersnaps, all held together by a wrapping of spiced mixed peel.
The citrus character returns and evolves to be more floral than before. Notes of vanilla, lychee and orange curd eventually fade to leave a sweet spice and an oak char impression.
