Tasting Notes:

Nose:

Dark orange chocolate, under-sugared peach jam and shredded lemon verbena. Rounded out by nutty, mature cheddar.

Palate:

Smoked paprika and cumin spice marries with tart sweetness: apple drops and slightly burnt pear upside-down-cake. More pepperiness with crunchy ginger-nut biscuits and a drop of star anise oil.

Finish:

Weathered leather, raw cacao nibs and the prickle of Pimento pepper, toned down with Danish butter cookies.
