Aroma: On opening, rich dark chocolate, cigar box and raisins before traces of old oak furniture emerge (some leather here too!). After a few minutes, a cognac-like Rancy smell emerges.
Taste: Continuing the elements of Christmas cake, and a little tobacco. Chocolate orange brownies, coffee beans and chewy dried fruit add flavor. Sparks of cinnamon and black pepper in the background for a pleasant warmth.
Finish: Long finish with rich aromas of sherry and butterscotch. Later Seville marmalade and ginger.
