Nose: Sitting on a soft, worn leather armchair while sipping on a Manhattan - this is all cherries and spice! Sandalwood, clove, cinnamon all invite you to enjoy this dram.
Taste: Chocolate and cherry abound and take on the richness of a black forest gateau topped with almond slivers. Ginger snaps with a cup of coffee balances the sweetness, and only adds to its moreish quality.
Palate: This is a beautifully intense, spicy finish that fades to cherry cola and black peppercorn.
