A toasty nose with aromas of hazelnut, toffee and sugar cookies. Spicier on the palate with plenty of cinnamon, nutmeg and mace, there is a back note of toasted oats and light vanilla accents. The supple mouthfeel is silky all the way through.

A captivating nose of roasted almond, orange zest, honeysuckle, fresh cinnamon, vanilla and toasted oats. The aromas of the nose translate well into a rich mouthfeel and lush flavors of honey, toasted oats, sweet spice and baked apricot while maintaining strong vanilla and orange zest notes. The finish is intense and sweet.
